Book Launch: PERFECTLY IMPOSSIBLE by Elizabeth Topp

November 5 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Elizabeth Topp, in conversation with Nicola Kraus (The Nanny Diaries) for the launch of her debut novel, PERFECTLY IMPOSSIBLE.
In her witty debut novel, Elizabeth Topp crafts a story that ventures behind the fanciful facade of Park Avenue and into the life of one lovable type A assistant. An artist at heart, Anna works a day job as a private assistant for Bambi Von Bizmark, a megarich Upper East Side matriarch who’s about to be honored at the illustrious Opera Ball. Her job is simple: prevent the unexpected from happening and do everything better than perfectly. What could possibly go wrong? Featuring a vibrant array of characters from the powerful to the proletarian, Perfectly Impossible offers a glimpse into a world you’ll never want to leave.
Elizabeth Topp penned her first short story in the second grade and has been writing ever since. A graduate of the Dalton school, Harvard College, and the Columbia School of the Arts, Topp co-authored her first book, Vaginas: An Owners Manual , with her gynecologist mother while she worked as a private assistant, a job she still holds.
Nicola Kraus is the co-author of numerous bestsellers, including The Nanny Diaries, Citizen Girl, Nanny Returns, and Dedication. She has also written for Paramount and Sony Pictures. In addition to her creative work, she is a founder of The Finished Thought, a creative consulting firm that helps aspiring authors in the fiction and nonfiction world turn their ideas into books.
