* Author Julie Satow Reads From and Signs "The Plaza: The Secret Life of America's Most Famous Hotel"

On Thursday, August 29 at 6:30, Bronx River Books will host a signing/reading/Q & A with Julie Satow, author of The Plaza: The Secret Life of America’s Most Famous Hotel. Satow is an award-winning journalist who has covered real estate in New York for more than a decade. Her work has appeared in The New York Times on National Public Radio as well as in the New York Post and HuffPost.

In her carefully researched, lively narrative, which spans the twentieth century, Satow details a grisly murder amidst the Plaza’s marble halls, describes battles to unionize, captures “how the stalwart staff dealt with class snobbery, and Prohibition” (Booklist), and tells tales of renowned and notorious owners and guests who stayed at this venerable New York institution including Capote, The Beatles, Vanderbilt, Bloomberg, and Trump.

Andrew Solomon, National Book Award-winning author of Far & Away: Reporting from the Brink of Change:Not since Eloise was written has anyone captured so charmingly the glamour and spectacle attendant on this hotel. . . also the seaminess of a place where the rich have manifested their most despicable tendencies and their most naked ambition time and again.” Kirkus writes that Satow “enlightens and entertains with stories and anecdotes that recount the hotel's many famous and colorful guests...An infectiously fun read."

Purchase your copy of The Plaza prior to the August 29 event for $29.00 plus tax.
