Scene @ Overlook's party for The Wentworths

Last night Peter Mayer, publisher of Overlook Press, opened up his Sohome to celebrate Katie Arnoldi's Los Angeles Times bestselling novel, The Wentworths.
While rubbing shoulders with publicist Jack Lamplough, I got to meet the majority of the Overlook publishing team, along with Mayer's daughter Liese, Carol Fitzgerald from The Book Report, Matthew Bialer from Sanford J Greenburger Assoc, and Judith Thurman, author and staff writer for The New Yorker, who wrote the introduction for Overlook's upcoming Milton Glaser book Drawing is Thinking.

Mayer and Thurman are both very excited about the Glaser book since it contains only images with no text, titles or instruction on how to read it at all. Can't wait to see it.
