I'm tempted to go this, not because the cost of the ticket is three hardback books but because I think it's a rare opportunity to pay homage to a unique brand and writer that is Jennifer Weiner.
"Best-selling author Jennifer Weiner will discuss "My Life as a Writer" on Sunday, June 14, 7 PM at Society Hill Synagogue [418 Spruce St. Philly, PA 19106]. Advance tickets can be purchased for $36 by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 215.922.6590. Alternatively, tickets may be purchased at the door on the day of the event for $50.
Jennifer will talk about growing up as a reader, working as a reporter, writing her first book, and having her second book turned into a movie, In Her Shoes. She will do a short reading followed by a question and answer session."
