Author Marion Meade has scheduled two readings/book signings to promote her new work Bobbed Hair and Bathtub Gin. The book, about Dorothy Parker, Edna Ferber, Zelda Fitzgerald, and Edna St. Vincent Millay during the Twenties, comes out May 18 from Nan A. Talese/Doubleday.

The first reading is Wednesday, May 19, 6 pm at The Corner Bookstore (Madison and 93rd). The next is Thursday, June 10, 7:30 pm at Barnes & Noble (Broadway and 82nd, near Dottie’s old house).

We are arranging a cocktail party after the reading for those in the DPS. Following the June 10 reading we’ll be going to The Dead Poet (Amsterdam and 81st Street).
