In observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, ECHN’s Breast Care Collaborative invites women to join “A Conversation with Jennifer Weiner” (a ladies-only event) on Sunday, October 28, 2012, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Windsor Marriott, 28 Day Hill Road, Windsor, Conn. The cost is $20 person.
The keynote speaker is best-selling author Jennifer Weiner, whose book titles include Good in Bed, In Her Shoes, and The Next Best Thing. She is also the co-creator and executive producer of the ABC Family show “State of Georgia,” which ran during the summer of 2011.
Weiner was born in 1970 on an army base in Louisiana. She grew up in Connecticut and graduated with a degree in English literature from Princeton University in 1991. She worked as a newspaper reporter in central Pennsylvania, Kentucky and Philadelphia until the publication of her first novel in 2001, and has been a full-time fiction writer ever since. Her work has appeared in Seventeen, Salon, Redbook, Glamour, Good Housekeeping, In Style and Elle. She writes occasionally for the Huffington Post and on her own blog. She can be found on Facebook, and on Twitter, where she keeps readers up to date on her writing life and live-tweets cheesy reality TV shows, including but not limited to “The Bachelor.” In 2011, Time Magazine named her as one of its 140 Best Twitter feeds.
Join her for a brunch and entertaining conversation. There will be a book sale and signing afterwards, along with health and wellness booths and giveaways.
