David Kirkpatrick Releases ‘The Facebook Effect’

facebookeffect.jpgLast night publishing leaders, technology writers, magazine editors, and mediabistro.com founder Laurel Touby mingled at the glitzy book party for David Kirkpatrick. We missed the party, but received a dispatch and that photo of Kirkpatrick (via Gabriel Cid).

Here’s more about the party: “Miles Nadal, Chairman & CEO of MDC Partners, hosted a cocktail party last night celebrating the release of David Kirkpatrick‘s new book, The Facebook Effect: The Inside Story of the Company That Is Connecting the World. The event was held at Michael’s Restaurant and was attended by Saul Hansell (noted technology writer), Andy Serwer (managing editor of Fortune), Dan Colarusso (Managing Editor of Bloomberg TV), and Priscilla Painton (Editor in Chief of Simon & Schuster).”

Next week, mediabistro.com’s video series MediaBeat will host a three-part interview with Kirkpatrick, talking about his new book, his magazine career, and how he turned his nonfiction reporting into a book deal.
