Weiner made her debut with the New York Times bestseller Good in Bed, the story of a smart, witty plus-size pop-culture journalist whose ex-boyfriend chronicles their ex-sex life on the pages of a top-selling women’s magazine. Her second novel, In Her Shoes, became a 2005 film starring Cameron Diaz, Toni Collette and Shirley MacLaine.
Weiner will discuss her books, personal experiences and women’s search for a sense of self.
The event is free and open to the public, and a book signing and dessert reception will follow. For information, visit: www.howiestillman.org.
