We’re Back! Celebrate Galentine’s Day 2/13 with Reading from SMOKE DRINK F*#K and BEEFCAKES AND CUPCAKES

The innovative, hybrid book publisher, Riverdale Avenue Books will be launching the publication of Smoke Drink F*#k by Esme Oliver at The Daisy NYC, 1641 2nd Ave, New York, NY from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. to celebrate Galentine’s Day. This is the first book from their new Hera imprint featuring women over 35 defining who they are.

Esme Oliver, the author of Smoke Drink F*#k, will read an excerpt from the book along with Judi Fennell, author of Beefcake and Cupcakes. The first 50 people will receive a bag of only the best Galentine’s Day goodies from Clipa handbag hangers, bookmarks from Integrative Health & Nutrition Coach Marissa Vicario, Burju Shoes gift certificates and more. Pink cocktails will be served at a special price.

Galentine’s Day is a holiday created by Amy Poehler on Parks & Rec. In the words of her character Leslie Knope, what is Galentine’s Day? “Oh, it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.”

Smoke Drink F*#k is a novel that showcases the spirit of strong driven women who go after what they want and know who they are,” said Publisher Lori Perkins. “It’s the perfect book to launch our new Hera imprint featuring heroines over 35.”

One book a month will be published to the new imprint. To learn more about Hera Books, please visit riverdaleavebooks.com.
