You are invited to join us on at 7pm Eastern for this salon hosted by Jeff Goodman ’82.

Tickets are $30. Wine, beer, soft drinks, and hors d’oeuvres will be provided. Readings will be sent to registrants one week before the event.

Stuyvesant Oval, New York, NY 10009, United States
Please join our Book Club in-person at 7pm Eastern time, when we will chat and compare notes on Nanny Dearest, a new novel by Flora Collins ’16. The discussion will be moderated by Lynn Janovsky ’86. We encourage you to read the book in advance to avoid any spoilers.

As we will be meeting in-person, we request that attendees be vaccinated and boosted. We will be meeting outside in Stuyvesant Town (with indoor space available in case of rain; exact location and directions will be shared with those who register). Space is limited; please register early.

Nanny Dearest is available at your local bookstore, Barnes & Noble, Strand Books, and Bookshop.org. In this compulsively readable novel of domestic suspense, a young woman takes comfort in reconnecting with her childhood nanny, until she starts to uncover secrets the nanny has been holding for twenty years.

Flora Collins ’16 was born and raised in New York City and has never left, except for a four-year stint at Vassar College. When she's not writing, she can be found watching reality shows that were canceled after one season or attempting to eat soft-serve ice cream in bed (sometimes simultaneously). Nanny Dearest is her first novel, and draws upon personal experiences from her own family history.
