Happy Birthday, Lady Jane Video

The February 7th Lady Jane’s Salon celebrated a big milestone for our girl. She turned two! Fittingly, Salon attendance reached an all time peak with not only sitting but also standing (and breathing) space at premium.

Guest emcee, Andrew Shaffer had us all rolling in what little aisle space was left with hilarious snippets from his nonfiction release, Great Philosophers Who Failed at Love, demonstrating that really brainy people failing in matters of the heart may be tragic but it’s also really funny.

Guest authors Courtney Milan, Caridad Ferrer & Lauren Willig treated us to readings from their latest releases.

For those of you who weren’t able to join us in the flesh, please enjoy the video of our founders toast and donation presentation to our 2010 recipient charity, Women-In-Need.

Happy Second Birthday, Lady Jane!

LADY-jane-logoOn Monday, February 7th, 7-9 PM my fellow co-founders (Leanna Renee Hieber, Ron Hogan, Maya Rodale), and I celebrate the second anniversary of Lady Jane’s Salon at our beloved Madame X. It’s hard to believe!

Joining us in ringing in the Big 0-2 are guest authors Courtney Milan, Lauren Willig, and Caridad Ferrer. Guest emcee, Andrew Shaffer, will read from his historical nonfiction debut, GREAT PHILOSOPHERS WHO FAILED AT LOVE.

Signed copies of the authors’ books will be available for purchase on site.

The festivities will include a champagne toast and presentation of an end-of-year donation check to Women In Need.

Launched in February ’09, Lady Jane’s remains New York City’s first (and so far only) reading series for romance fiction. Admission is $5 or one gently-used paperback romance novel. Book donations and net proceeds benefit New York City groups assisting women in need.

Subsequently Salons meet on the first Monday of the month unless otherwise noted. Visit us here at www.LadyJaneSalon.com, on FaceBook at http://tinyurl.com/ladyjanefb or follow us on Twitter@LadyJanesSalon.

Happy Birthday, Lady Jane, and Happy Valentine’s Month!
