About Wedding Issues

Olivia “Liv” Fitzgerald, soon-to-be-lawyer, can talk anyone into anything. Well, almost anything. When her scheming aunt throws her cousin, Kali, into a competition for a bridal magazine cover alongside Liv’s best friend, Leighton, all hell breaks loose. To save the day, Liv only has to:

a) Secure the Southern Charmers cover for Leighton,

b) Keep Aunt Charlotte happy and Kali’s wedding running smoothly,

c) Finish her final year of law school and nab a coveted NYC big-law job, and

d) Win over the guy of her dreams. What, like it’s hard?

With sparking prose, debut author Elle Evans gives us a hysterical, moving twist on the classic bride wars story. Readers will root for Liv as she balances her schemes, dreams, and double Maid of Honor duties, discovering that integrity might be more important than smooth talking–even if it means she can’t please everyone at once.

The event begins at 7 pm., Sunday, April 3 and should be over by 9 p.m. at Athena Books, 228 Sound Beach Ave., Greenwich.

General admission tickets cost $15; for a ticket and paperback copy of the book, $30; for a ticket and hardcover copy, $40. Your ticket includes wine and light dessert.
