DOphoto23.jpgAs New York City shivers through another cold snap, local GalleyCat readers should warm up at a special book-themed cocktail party from mediabistro.com.

Tomorrow night, this GalleyCat editor will co-host a party at Copper Door Tavern in Manhattan with physician, editor and author Danielle Ofri (pictured). The party will celebrate the release of her new book, “Medicine in Translation.” The event also aims to build a stronger literary community at mediabistro.com–a new chance for writers, readers, and publishing professionals to mingle. It is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 12, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.

Follow this link to RSVP. Here’s more about Ofri’s book: “[The book] is a look at the multicultural aspects of medicine. Ofri is the doctor to patients from all over the world at Bellevue Hospital. When she moves to Costa Rica, she has the opportunity to experience some of what her patients have experienced, when she has her baby in a foreign country.”
