October 8, 2009 : Author Amy Sohn's "Prospect Park West" Book Reading and Signing Party at Richard Meier On Prospect Park

 

Momasphere hosted bestselling author Amy Sohn for a book reading of her latest novel Prospect Park West (Simon & Schuster; September 1, 2009; $25.00) on October 8th, 2009 from 7-9pm at the stunning Richard Meier On Prospect Park.  Book Court offered discounted copies of the book for $20. A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit www.childrenofthecity.com.

 


The event showcased two Brooklyn icons in one exciting evening: a reading, signing and Q&A by Brooklyn mommy author Amy Sohn from her new book, Prospect Park West in the minimalist architectural masterpiece, Richard Meier On Prospect Park.  Sarah Jessica Parker’s production company has optioned the story in conjunction with HBO for a half-hour show.  In the same way that "Sex and the City" examined the lives of four independent women who live and love in contemporary Manhattan, Sohn's latest novel delves into the scandalous, sexy lives of four different mothers as each goes through a crisis adjusting to parenthood in the picturesque haven of Park Slope, Brooklyn.  

Amy Sohn’s private reading of Prospect Park West was sponsored by Richard Meier On Prospect Park. The newly-completed condominium residences at Richard Meier On Prospect Park gracefully overlook the location of the book’s title, Prospect Park West, with spectacular cityscape, harbor and park views from the signature floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall glass. The building’s design by Pritzker Prize winning architect Richard Meier celebrates the convergence of classic architecture and modern living. Guests were be treated to an insider’s view of this modernist landmark while enjoying: 

 

  1. A Sonia Tote in Blueberry (value $548) from Hayden Harnett
  2. Any style Paul Frank sunglasses (value $200) from Park Slope Eye
  3. A $100 gift certificate to Pampered Passions Fine Lingerie online store
  4. Choice of 1 Hr full massage (valued at $90) from The Slope Health & Fitness
  5. One of 3 signed copies of Amy Sohn's "Prospect Park West"
  6. There will also be gift bags for every attendee!

Moms pampered themselves to an evening away from the kids and enjoyed a wonderful book party!
