Book Party “Rituals of the North American W.A.S.P.”

9780446197977_154X233.jpgNext week mediabistro.com will host the launch party for Lauren Lipton‘s new novel, ‘Mating Rituals Of The North American W.A.S.P.’

The party will be held on Wednesday, July 22, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at Metro 53 in New York City. The first 50 people will receive a free copy of the book. There will be drink specials and a $4 specialty drink for the occasion: the Cape Codder. Earlier this year GalleyCat editor Ron Hogan interviewed Lipton about her work.

Here’s more about the book: “After arguing with her live-in boyfriend about his inability to commit, Peggy Adams flies to a friend’s bachelorette party in Las Vegas, and wakes up next to a man she can’t remember. Hung-over and miserable, she sneaks out of the sleeping man’s hotel room and returns home to New York, where her boyfriend apologizes for the fight and gives her a Tiffany box containing a pre-engagement ring.”
