With work featured in Glamour, Fortune, and the LA Times, among others, journalist Erin Carlson discusses her delightful debut book, I'll Have What She's Having: How Nora Ephron's Three Iconic Films Saved the Romantic Comedy. Erin will be in conversation with Janet Reilly, philanthropist and former anchorwoman.

About I'll Have What She's Having: With a cast of famous faces including Rob Reiner, Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan, and Billy Crystal, Carlson takes readers on a rollicking, revelatory trip to Ephron's New York City, where reality took a backseat to romance and Ephron--who always knew what she wanted and how she wanted it--ruled the set with an attention to detail that made her actors feel safe but sometimes exasperated crew members. Along the way, Carlson examines how Ephron explored in the cinema answers to the questions that plagued her own romantic life and how she regained faith in love after one broken engagement and two failed marriages.
