Treat Yourself this Galentine's Day with Catherine Cohen, Melissa Weller, and Meg Stalter!
Can't see your friends for candy, booze, and love this Galentine's Day? Take it virtual, and join Catherine Cohen & Melissa Weller in a bake-a-long hang-a-long! Catherine & Melissa will be making Melissa's famous fudgy brownies, and the two authors will be joined by none other than comedian extraordinaire and special guest Meg Stalter! Zoom with your Galentines, put on your sweats, and crack open a bottle of wine (yes, a bottle) -- there will be laughs, chocolate, poetry, and baking -- as far as Zoom events go, this one will be pretty fun.
Virtual doors open at 2:45 pm CT, and we'll get started at 3:00 pm CT. Don't forget to pre-heat those ovens for the brownie demo (or bring the whole pan + fork to the couch, if you made them in advance)!
We're excited to be co-hosting this event with Knopf.
