Hey Ladies! Book Launch

When: April 27, 2018 @ 7–9pm

“Hey Ladies!” was a column in The Toast, a humor and feminist writing website active from 2013 to 2016. Hey Ladies! is a book that “follows a fictitious group of eight 20-and-30-something female friends for one year of holidays, summer house rentals, dates, brunches, breakups, and, of course, the planning of a disastrous wedding.” The entire novel is told through emails, texts, DMs, and any other form of communication you can think of.

At the book launch of Hey Ladies!, authors Michelle Markowitz and Caroline Moss will join friends and their audience for drinks, games, readings, raffles, giveaways, and more.
