You’re invited to an intimate evening of conversation with writer Ilene Beckerman,  best-selling author of Love, Loss and What I Wore.  Beckerman’s book, which has been adapted for the stage by Nora and Delia Ephron, is a memoir that tells her life story through her favorite pieces of clothing. From her Brownie uniform to her black strapless Rita Hayworth–style dress, Beckerman's story is told in a thoroughly relatable way.  

  • Space is limited
  • Please RSVP via this link.   
  • Tickets are $50.00
  • Please bring a piece of clothing that has special meaning for you. 

Please also read the book ahead of the session.  The links below let you buy directly. 

This event is made possible through BOOKTHEWRITER, a service that provides authors to small groups for unique, intimate conversations.  Details on the UWS location will be provided once you have confirmed attendance.
