Lifestyle Expert and Author Mary Giuliani: How to Lose Friends and Influence No One
What happens when a lifestyle expert, author and celebrated "caterer to the stars" (and incessant people pleaser) begins to REALLY ponder "what's it all about?" She writes another book! Please join us for a lively evening with Mary Giuliani as she presents her latest book, How to Lose Friends and Influence No One.
About the Book:
Mary Giuliani deconstructs her ever-evolving existential internal conversation in this new collection of essays, beginning when all the world (and all the stars) are ordered to stay home. Armed with an arsenal of pigs in a blanket and what felt like all the vodka in Manhattan, Mary begins her deep look into what it's finally like to get what she thought she always wanted: peace. Never one to hold much back, Mary invites the reader on this journey as she reexamines life when the proverbial party appears to be over. With space and time to finally stop and take stock of "how did I get here?" Mary shares stories about businesses and relationships and makes some poignant and hilarious revelations while waiting for her beloved New York City to rise from its slumber.
About the Author:

A food and beverage storyteller and granter of “culinary wishes” who loves to take a client’s fledging “great idea” and bring it life, Mary has created parties for the crème de la crème of the art, fashion, and entertainment sets, earning her the moniker “Caterer To The Stars” for over 20 years.
