On May 5th we hosted our third Open Book Event, a tristate program of book buzzes, panels, and author presentations. We hosted six incredible authors including Alisyn Camerota, Camille Bordas, Sam Graham-Felsen, Emily Culliton, Fred Van Lenta, and Tom Hunt. Today, we’re highlighting Alisyn Camerota’s talk about her debut Amanda Wakes Up.
The Devil Wears Prada meets Primary Colors in this wickedly funny debut novel about a bootstrapping young reporter who lands a plum job at a big-time cable news station and finds her ambitions and her love life turned upside down.
“Amanda Gallo is my kind of girl: funny, self-aware, and unable to resist a makeover. Who knew there was so much good drama behind the perfectly coiffed talking heads we see every morning on cable news? . . . I loved this novel.” —Lauren Weisberger, author of The Devil Wears Prada
