“Books: The New Tupperware?” roused my curiosity enough to click the link on the Publishers Weekly site. Yesterday morning about 30 women in the 35-45 age bracket got together at Mandy Brooks home in Rye, NY, from 10:00 until noon. They came to meet Kelly Corrigan, hear her share, and buy her book—The Middle Place.

Corrigan’s book just came out a few days ago and is already generating some buzz. The book is described as alternating stories of Corrigan’s youth and her recent battle with cancer. The author, 40, and her father, 77, are both cancer survivors.

Selling books and drinking coffee in Mandy’s living room seems an appropriate relational setting for a book that begins, “The thing you need to know about me is that I am George Corrigan’s daughter.”
