Daphne will be signing copies of her newest bestseller, too.

Starting at 7:00pm we’ll have the honor of moderating a lively discussion with New York Times best-selling author and Emmy Award-winning co-host of ABC’s The Chew, Daphne Oz as she shares her inspiration behind her new book, The Happy Cook: 125 Recipes for Eating Every Day Like It’s the Weekend, as well as ideas, tips, advice and more to help even the most nervous or reluctant novice transform into a happy, confident cook.

 

After our interview, we’ll open up the floor for audience questions and the evening will wrap up with a reception and book signing.

This event will take place in the Community Room and is free to all thanks to the wonderful folks at the Darien Library.

Hope to see you there!
