Last month I attended mediabistro.com’s Book Club party at Stone Creek Bar & Lounge, hosted by the always lovely Carmen Scheidel. I have so much fun every time I attend a mediabistro.com event, and May 16 was no exception. I got to catch up with various friends in the media industry, meet some new people, and hear some authors read.
The night’s readings included:
Susie DeFord reading her Brooklyn dog poetry Dog’s of Brooklyn. As it turns out, Susie got her MFA at The New School too!
Jane Hodges reading from her informative Rent Vs. Own: A Real Estate Reality Check for Navigating Booms, Busts, and Bad Advice and answering the audience’s’ questions. She said it’s not always better to own than to rent, despite the fact that many people still think home ownership is important.
Jillian Medoff reading a dramatic scene (oh how she hooked me in) from her novel I Couldn’t Love You More and sharing her experience as a writer dealing with the book publishing industry.
Here’s a picture mediabistro.com snapped of me at the event.
