Event: Single Girl Summer Book Signing

Not long ago I attended the book signing for the novel Single Girl Summer by Deanna Burrell.

Not long ago I attended the book signing for the novel Single Girl Summer by Deanna Burrell.

The signing held at the Red Canary in Chicago, was packed as guests anxiously waited to have Deanna sign their books!

For those of you who are unaware of the book…

 Single Girl Summer tells the tale of 3 ladies: Button Jackson, Meghan Cherry and Dawn Martin as they deal with love, heartbreak, fashion and friendship.

Single Girl Summer is definitely a fun summer read as you get a glimpse inside of each characters life you will find yourself trying to figure out which character you are most like . The fun thing about Button, Meghan and Dawn was although they are great friends they each had very different personalities and different ways of doing things. The other fun thing about Single Girl Summer is the book is set in my very own hometown Chicago( the author is too), what could be more fun than that?

During the book signing  Deanna had tables that represented each character that were filled with Jewelry and description cards on each of the 3 characters!

How cute was that?

After working the scene it was my turn to meet Deanna and have my copy signed..

Couldn’t leave without a photo-op with the author

My friends and I have already decided that this will be our next selection for our book club!

And to Nikki Bruce of Grey Matter Photography for coming along!
