This store is close to Richard's house, but we won't know if he'll be able to make an appearance until that day.  Other local cartoonists in the book will certainly be there.

Meredith Goldstein - The Singles

   

Get ready to laugh with your friends when advice columnist and entertainment reporter for The Boston Globe Meredith Goldstein discusses her new book, The Singles.

  

The Singles"Back in her single days - before she met the man of her dreams - Beth "Bee" Evans hated being forced to attend weddings solo. Determined to spare her friends the same humiliation, she invites everyone on her list with a guest. Much to her chagrin, however, Hannah, Vicki, Rob, Joe, and Nancy insist upon attending Bee's lavish Chesapeake Bay nuptials alone. The frustrated bride dubs them the "The Singles" and their collective decision wreaks unintended havoc on her otherwise perfectly planned wedding weekend."

  1. There will be additional local booksignings. Politics and Prose is almost set and Big Planet Comics Bethesda would like to do one.

  3. Carolyn of Curls Studio, I hope you'll plan on signing copies of the book for people!

    I still haven't seen the book, but I hear it's great.
