Meet Michael Ruhlman, Roland Mesnier and Lisa Yokelson among others


Recommended Posts

Ruhlman, Mesnier and Yokelson will be signing books and answering questions at the Annual National Press Club Book fair.

The event is open to public. It is $5 to get in, this is a fundraiser, so they don't allow books from the outside. Jim Lehrer is the chairman this year. This event gets very crowded, it is better to get in early. If you plan to dine at The Fourth Estate (open to the public restaurant) you should make reservations. I think you get free parking with that if you park at the designated garage, but you need to check that out when you make the reservations. (If you plan to get in early, pm me, I'll buy you a drink at the members only bar,The Reliable Source.)

Here is the club announcement:
