Cheese, Wine And Chuckles Overflow

Miami, FL (PressExposure) December 04, 2009 -- The Bookstore in the Grove recently hosted a book signing appearance featuring Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Susie Essman, who authored her first book, “What Would Susie Say?” More than 75 guests filled the charming bookstore to enjoy a night of wine and cheese and listen to Susie read excerpts from her book. The reading was followed by a very comedic Q&A session that led to how Essman’s career evolved from stand-up comedian to accomplished actress. At the end of the night audience members went home with a book personally signed by Susie.

The Bookstore in the Grove also set up a convenient $25 VIP Package for eager fans and patrons of the bookstore. The package, available for purchase online at the bookstore’s website, included an autographed book, reserved seating, free parking and complimentary wine & cheese.

Many know Susie Essman from her sassy role as Susie Greene on the critically acclaimed HBO comedy series, Curb Your Enthusiasm. Her hilarious bouts of withering sarcasm and uninhibited insults have become her character’s trademark. And now Susie adds published author to her list of accomplishments with her new book, What Would Susie Say?, published by Simon & Schuster.

“I was very pleased to see a room packed with people all anxious to meet Susie,” says bookstore co-owner, Sandy Francis. I look forward to offering our customers with many more author appearances just as entertaining and engaging as Susie,” adds Francis.

About The Bookstore in the Grove

The Bookstore in the Grove was founded in 2007 by long-time friends and business partners, Sandy Francis and Felice Dubin. At the time, Coconut Grove was lacking a bookstore, so Francis and Dubin took the community reigns and established The Bookstore in the Grove. To date, The Bookstore in the Grove is the only general interest bookstore in the city of Miami. An important part of the community, The Bookstore in the Grove doesn’t just “sell” books, but also serves as a “community hub” for local Grove-ites and visitors. With a warm and welcoming ambiance, the bookstore provides free Wi-Fi, has a wonderful café with “free trade” coffee and a delightful gift store. For additional information, visit
