Looking for a way to pass the time while you wait out this weekend’s wintry weather?  If so, you’re in luck because Mark Whitaker’s “My Long Trip Home” just  hit bookshelves.  Earlier this week, the EVP and  managing editor of CNN Worldwide returned to Washington to celebrate the release of his family memoir at an intimate affair hosted in the Georgetown residence of Mandy Grunwald.

No shortage of star power, the event boasted big name guests like  Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA), CBS News Bureau Chief Chris Isham, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell and hubby Alan Greenspan, NYT’s Mark Leibovich, NBC’s Luke Russert, Alexis Gelber, Ben Bradlee and Sally Quinn, Huff Post’s Howard Fineman, CNN’s Jessica Yellin, Dana Bash, Wolf Blitzer, and Kate Bolduan.

If you weren’t lucky enough to pick up a signed copy of “My Long Trip Home” on Tuesday night, stop by your local bookstore.  FishbowlDC pre-ordered our copy and we guarantee that you won’t be disappointed.  For more on Whitaker’s new work, check out our earlier post here.
