Wedlocked: A Novel Book Signing at Book Revue in Huntington, NY
Continuing the successful promotion of her recently released book, Wedlocked: A Novel, author Bonnie Trachtenberg will be conducting a book signing at Book Revue in Huntington, NY.
The signing is scheduled for Thursday, October 13, 2011 at 7:00 pm. Book Revue is located at 313 New York Avenue, Huntington, NY. Wine, cheese and refreshments will be served. Trachtenberg will speak, read excerpts and answer questions about herself and her book, a romantic comedy based on her first, brief and calamitous marriage:
Wedlocked is the humorous, engaging tale of Rebecca Ross, a struggling actress who lets years of disappointment and heartache catapult her into a disastrous marriage and onto a hilariously hellish honeymoon.
Many thanks to Eliza Cross for the thoughtful interview.
"You’ve published fiction, nonfiction, books, essays, short stories, poetry and more," Eliza asks. "Somehow you’ve managed to cross all of these genres while still maintaining a very distinctive “brand.” Was that a conscious marketing decision or a natural evolution of who you are and what you like to write? Or both?"
Please RSVP (Attendees Only): mdoallas[at]aol.com by October 1.

Jade says: Snodgrass has a unique and intriguing way of telling a story. The writing was excellent and the story was compelling. If you like historical fiction and enjoy reading about the civil rights era, this is the perfect book to read.
