SPECIAL TO THE AJT //
On June 12, the MJCCA will welcome Lauren Weisberger – New York Times bestselling author of “The Devil Wear Prada” and the new, much-anticipated follow-up, “Revenge Wears Prada” – for a book talk and signing in a “Page from the Book Festival” event.

Weisberger’s “Devil” was published in 40 languages and made into a major motion picture starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway. The sequel “Revenge” is set eight years after character Andrea “Andy” Sachs quit the job “a million girls would die for” – working for Miranda Priestly at Runway Magazine – a dream that turned out to be a nightmare.
Now Andy’s on the top of the world: she’s writing and reporting to her heart’s content; running The Plunge, her wildly successful high fashion bridal magazine with Miranda’s other ex-assistant, Emily; and most importantly, getting married to the scion of a storied media family and the love of her life. But the night before her wedding, Andy can’t sleep. As happy as she is – or should be – she’s still haunted by the specter of her former boss.
Maybe it’s survivor syndrome? Or maybe it’s justifiable, self-inflicted, paranoia?
Interested AJT readers can get more hints plus an autographed copy of the book and insight from the author herself at the MJCCA event.
