Last night’s soiree for James Patterson and his latest novel Sundays at Tiffany’s was the first book celebration at Tiffany & Co. since the publication of Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote in 1968.
Hosted by Mike Kowalski, Tiffany and Co’s Chairman and CEO, there was a mix of media and fashion folks noshing on pigs in blankets (couchon en douvet?) and drinking the vino including Tiffany’s creative director John Loring, New York Post’s gossip gal Liz Smith, agent Bob Barnett, CBS Sunday Morning correspondent Rita Braver, Hachette Book Group CEO David Young, Little, Brown Publisher Michael Pietsch, President of Random House films Peter Gethers, and Publishers Weekly’s Sara Nelson. The highbrow event even made the NYC Social Diary
Tiffany’s created two window displays at their 5th ave store featuring the book along with their Celebration Ring which is mentioned in Paterson’s return to the romance novel. In his speech, Patterson mentioned that one of his most well-received books was a love story (Suzanne’s Diaries for Nicholas) and that many fans named their children Nicholas after reading it.
I wonder how many people out there are named Alex Cross? I know of at least one cat…
Note to self: title next book after famous and very expensive store.
