Brooklyn in Love

What a fun afternoon we spent with author Amy Thomas signing copies of her books, Brooklyn in Love and Paris My Sweet.

Forever a girl obsessed with all things French, sweet freak Amy Thomas landed a gig as rich as the purest dark chocolate: leave Manhattan for Paris to write ad copy for Louis Vuitton. Working on the Champs-Élysées, strolling the charming streets, and exploring the best patisseries and boulangeries, Amy marveled at the magnificence of the City of Light.
But does falling in love with one city mean turning your back on another? As much as Amy adored Paris, there was part of her that felt like a humble chocolate chip cookie in a sea of pristine macarons. PARIS, MY SWEET explores how the search for happiness can be as fleeting as a salted caramel souffle's rise, as intensely satisfying as molten chocolate cake, and about how the life you're meant to live doesn't always taste like the one you envisioned.
Part love letter to Paris, part love letter to New York, and total devotion to all things sweet, PARIS, MY SWEET is a treasure map for anyone with a hunger for life.
We have a few signed copies on hand.

Author Talk Tiger Woods-New Canaan Library TONIGHT

Join us for this special evening to get a peak into the mind of golf legend, Tiger Woods, as authors Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian present their new biography, TIGER WOODS. “Very few individuals are known throughout the world by one word,” write Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian. “Tiger reached that exclusive club by being the greatest golfer—some would say the greatest athlete—in modern history. But his story transcends golf, and his influence reached around the globe.” Until now, there has never been a 360-degree comprehensive account of Tiger’s life, one that closely examines his roots and the vital role his parents played in his epic rise, fall, and return. Benedict and Keteyian set out to deliver something fresh and revealing, a complete human portrait of a true, albeit reluctant, American idol. TIGER WOODS is that portrait.
At the New Canaan Library tonight April 11th @ 6:30pm!
