Fans of the book The Nanny Diaries can grab a copy of The First Affair, the new novel by the writing team Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, a week before it hits bookshelves. The two authors will discuss their new tome with Cosmopolitan executive editor Joyce Chang, sharing anecdotes, answering audience questions and signing copies. Don’t expect Monica Lewinsky or Linda Tripp to show up. The Nanny Diaries is about a White House intern who has a torrid, secretive affair with the president of the United States. A perfect chance to wear that belted, button-down blue dress from the Gap.
Bryant Park Reading Room, 42nd Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenue, 12:30pm-1:45pm.
