Up for Renewal Redux

On July 30 Gretchen Hitchner will turn her store Ginger over to her (and my) good friend Cathy Alter to celebrate the paperback launch of Cathy's book Up For Renewal. The book is Cathy's real-life (and very clever) portrayal of how she solved a definite lifestyle "slump" by following the advice of popular magazines, one mag at a time. The result is much more than a new life for Cathy--it's a hilarious, perceptive romp through a phase in Cathy's life that any of us who ever picked up a mag ISO of "a whole new life" or something/anything we could latch onto. I admit I'm one of those, and I loved the book (hardback version). We Bethesdans are very happy the party is right here at the fabulous Ginger on Bethesda Lane, where Cathy (who also teaches writing at Johns Hopkins) will be on hand to sign copies of  the book, hot off the presses with a brand new cover.  And if that's not enough, local jewelry designer Suzanne Sommersall will also be in the store to showcase her new "Barcelona" collection of fabulous fine jewelry.  RSVP@thepattongroupinc.com, 301-229-4883
