What better way to kick off the summer reading program than a meet and greet luncheon with Jennifer Weiner? Weiner, a Princeton University graduate, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, television producer, and former journalist has been coming to Princeton Public Library for over a decade to promote her books. This year, the library opted for a luncheon held at the Nassau Club.
Weiner visited each table and answered questions before the meal was served. Lunch consisted of quiche, salad, and a dessert plate and was delicious. The tables were beautifully decorated with a collection of books, and one lucky guest from each table won their stack.
After lunch, Jennifer Weiner spoke to all and answered more questions from how she chooses book titles and character names to when she felt successful. Known for her sense of humor, she sprinkled her responses with wit and kept the crowd amused. I could have listened to her all day.
Her latest book titled All Fall Down is about a housewife who has become addicted to painkillers. All attendees received a copy for her to sign after lunch. If you weren’t able to attend, the library has six hard cover copies and one audio book to borrow, but I anticipate that there will be a wait for all copies. Therefore, place your hold now so you can read it this summer!
