We invite you to meet author Karen Dukess as she talks about and signs copies of her new book, The Last Book Party, on Tuesday evening, July 23rd at 6:30pm.

A smart, fun summer read for fans of Maggie Shipstead and J. Courtney Sullivan, a literary and romantic affair set in 1980's New York and Cape Cod.
A directionless 20-something aspiring writer scores a job as the assistant to a famous New Yorker writer at his summer house and an invitation to his famous end of summer "Book Party", where guests dress as literary characters and the best costume wins a fabulous prize -- but by the night of the party, she realizes that the world she wanted to badly to be a part of is not what it seems.
About the author:
With a background in newspaper and magazine journalism, Karen Dukess spent the last eight years as a speechwriter on gender equality at the United Nations Development Programme. She is a graduate of Brown University and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and lives in Pelham, New York.
