Louise Miller is still flying high from Jennifer’s MODERN GIRLS launch party. She was blown away (but not surprised) by what an amazing speaker and reader Jennifer is. Check out her website event schedule and go see for yourself!

MODERN GIRLS cake and MODERN GIRLS Manhattan after readingJennifer S. Brown is not surprised that Louise picked the least flattering photo of Jennifer to post, but it was such a fun night and the picture definitely represents how she felt: happy and silly. And that had nothing to do with the MODERN GIRL Manhattans she consumed after the reading. She’s excited to start visiting book groups and feels prepared now to do more readings. Launch week was beyond her expectations and she wish this feeling would never go away! But alas, it’s time to return to work and continue working on novel #2 (which is not a sequel!).

Heather Young drank a couple of Manhattans in honor of Jennifer’s book launch this week!

Abby Fabiaschi is Momma-sized proud of Jennifer’s success this week! Abby spent the week in New York meeting her film agent, marketing contact, and publicist for the first time. They are all spectacular. She also had a photo shoot, which she wishes she brought a flask to.

Aya de Leon is feeling a completely inordinate sense of accomplishment that she got the preview copy of MODERN GIRLS on her kindle and read a whole book on a screen (her first print book in ages). She is also feeling just the right amount of excitement and gratitude that her photo, name, and the title of her book appeared in the LA Weekly’s article on #AWP16.

  1. Loved this interview Louise! I can only imagine how much fun it was to hear Jennifer speak, so wish I could attend one of her events. Love the photo also and yes to Manhattan’s which used to be my fav when I was young and worked in NYC a long time ago. And yes I did wear gloves and heels trekking to work every day! Modern Girls looks like a great book and I hope to read it soon!

    1. The Manhattans were absolutely deadly. But so amazingly delicious! As were the two other drinks we served: Dottie’s Downfall (a whiskey sour) and The Park Ave. (a champagne cocktail, of course!). I should find myself a pair of gloves for future readings! 🙂
