Jen and Jennifer at the Reading Room

Have a laugh with Jennifer Weiner and Jen Lancaster over lunch at the Bryant Park Reading Room sponsored by HSBC on Wednesday. The two New York Times best-selling authors and friends will join forces for an afternoon on writing, pop culture and their newly published books.

You may know Jennifer Weiner from her popular book In Her Shoes, which became a movie with Cameron Diaz and Shirley MacLaine. Now she's back with two more works of fiction, Then Came You, and her forthcoming novel The Next Best Thing, which will be released on July 3rd. Author and memoirist, Jen Lancaster, will be talking about her newest book Jeneration X; One Reluctant Adult's Attempt to Unarrest Her Arrested Development; Or, Why It's Never Too Late for Her Dumb Ass to Learn Why Froot Loops Are Not for Dinner.

These prolific writers other topics have included: weight loss, reality tv, motherhood, paying rent, finding jobs, finding love, losing love... it's all there. Both create relatable, self-deprecating tales that remind us to find humor in life's challenges. They will certainly lighten your mood on Wednesday. And two lucky attendees will win one book by either Jen or Jennifer. Be one of the first two people to check-in on Foursquare for more information.
