Get Your Book Buzz On!
Book Buzz Night

Bring your love of books-and book-loving friends-to become part of a select few gaining an insider's knowledge of the new books that are creating the biggest buzz in the publishing world. For this night of books, the Library Foundation is pleased to host representatives of two major publishing houses, Penguin Random House and HarperCollins. These publishers' reps will share previews of their newest titles and will be available to discuss all things book-related. This event is ideal for book groups and will include a gourmet offering of refreshments from our delicious new neighbor, Baker & Olive, as well as book totes, catalogs and book samples while the offerings last. One lucky book lover will go home with a gift basket full of new hardbacks as well! Join us to preview exciting new titles upcoming for spring/summer 2017, and to get an inside peek at the world of publishing. Plan your book group's reading schedule accordingly and bring all your members to this exciting event.

No charge to attend.

Please note: event begins at 6:30pm

Stephanie Danler

Stephanie Danler is the author of the international and New York Times bestseller, Sweetbitter. The debut novel garnered international attention just one week after its release. Danler's work has appeared in Vogue Magazine, Travel and Leisure, Bon Appetit and O Magazine to name a few.

Hailing from California, Danler wound up working in the fast-paced and often chaotic Manhattan restaurant life before enrolling in graduate school at The New School, where she wrote Sweetbitter whose backdrop is that very experience in New York City.

Delicious nibbles provided by Baker & Olive, Corona del Mar Plaza.
