Doree Shafrir on Book Party Hosting and Mothers

A crowd of writers and mothers gathered at the Slipper Room in Manhattan last night, helping launch “Love, Mom: Poignant, Goofy, Brilliant Messages from Home.”

Conceived by Doree Shafrir (currently of the NYO, formerly of Gawker) and Jessica Grose (formerly of Jezebel), the book collects wacky correspondence from mothers around the country.

GalleyCat caught up with Shafrir for a quick video interview, finding out how she built her packed turnout for a book party in the middle of a recession. Our siblings at FishbowlNY also stopped by the festivities last night, uncovering some photos of the party.
