Miss Manners (aka Judith Martin) in conversation with @TheBookMaven (aka Bethanne Patrick)
Join us - virtually - on June 9th at 7pm for a conversation between Miss Manners and @TheBookMaven! Judith Martin and Bethanne Patrick will discuss Martin's latest book, Minding Miss Manners: In an Era of Fake Etiquette.
Minding Miss Manners: In an Era of Fake Etiquette is a modern guide to modern manners. Facing down the miscreants purveying false etiquette rules (no, you may not wait a year to send a thank-you note for a gift and yes, in an age of social-media-encouraged over-familiarity you can politely refuse to answer nosy questions), Miss Manners guides you through these turbulent times with her timeless wisdom and archly acid wit.
To attend this virtual event, you must pre-order a copy of Minding Miss Manners: In an Era of Fake Etiquette from One More Page Books. We will send information to access the live event to the email address used when you purchase the book.
First 100 orders will receive signed book plates with their books!
