Whoopi Goldberg
Friday, October 11th at 7pm

Please join us for an evening with host of The View Whoopi Goldberg as she signs copies of her new book The Unqualified Hostess.

About The Unqualified Hostess:

It’s Whoopi here and I’ve written this book that, frankly, is the last book anyone would expect. You would never think of me as someone with the courage to say, ‘You have everything you need to be fantastic in your own house, apartment, or trailer to set a great table.’

Let’s face it, you look at a lot of books on Entertaining and think ‘I could never do this in my house, I don’t have this stuff and it’s not going to look like what I’m seeing.’ That’s not what’s going to happen here! I want to show you there is great heart in setting the table. For two or four or the kids or Halloween or tea just for you. For dinners with friends or the holidays. I’m going to tell you stories about what I do when people come over and give you ideas about what you’re seeing because Honey, everything in this book is what you can do in your house. 

You got a bodega or a 7-Eleven near you? They sell flowers. Take those bad boys and put them on your table. You got some crazy old plate from your grandmother (or a fancy silver one)? You got little kids’ toys that have been annoying you forever, put them on the table too. Who’s going to tell you it’s wrong? Not me! I’m going to tell you it’s right and I’m going to take you on a journey. And don’t forget the bathroom; decorate it too, people are going to see it. It’s all at your house. Come with me. I’ll show you! 

P.S. I know the glass on the cover is broken. Accidents happen!
