Reading Room Cliffs Notes: Week of May 25

Reading Room Cliffs Notes is the essential guide to what's going on in the Reading Room for the upcoming week. The "Flashback" section captures a highlight from last week, while "Foreshadowing" gives a full list of the upcoming week's events. Make a visit to the Bryant Park Reading Room presented by HSBC a plot point in your week!  

Flashback of the Week: Bethenny Frankel, I Suck At Relationships So You Don't Have To

Real Housewives of New York City stars Bethenny Frankel (right) and Carole Radzwill (left) discussed Bethenny’s new book, I Suck at Relationships so You Don’t Have to  and offered the audience a little dating and relationship advice. Frankel gave us her take on "understanding men," and what they really want when it comes to a relationship. She hopes that her book will help readers steer clear of her previous relationship "mistakes."

To find out more about how Bethenny would advise those just coming out of an "unhealthy" relationship and what exactly she believes are true relationship mistakes, pick up a copy of her latest book.
