From Andy Cohen, the New York Times bestselling author and host of Watch What Happens Live, an inspiring collection of daily quotes from the larger-than-life women that defined his life, offering inspiration, affirmation, and (just enough) intoxication to make any day shine bright – the perfect gift for the holidays!

Andy Cohen has made a career, and a life, out of making the ordinary extraordinary. The inspiration for this fabulous, over-the-top view of the world has always come from the incredible women (from his mother to Madonna) he loves. In Glitter Every Day Andy shares his most beloved words of daily inspiration, affirmation, and (just enough) intoxication from those lovely ladies to make any ordinary day shine bright.

.
Andy not only gathers 365 sayings and quotes from the icons, thought leaders, Real Housewives and legendary celebs that fuel his fun, he writes about the people and experiences that have made him live one of the most joyous lives that any little boy growing up in St. Louis could dream of so that you can, too. And like Andy himself, Glitter Every Day is irresistible, infusing your day with a laugh, a pep talk and a shot(ski) of fun.

.
So pour a drink, put on your heels, and always remember to let yourself shine.

Emily Ratajkowski is a model, actress, activist, entrepreneur, and writer. Ratajkowski has also appeared on the covers of multiple magazines and walked the runway for numerous high fashion brands. Her 2020 essay for New York magazine, “Buying Myself Back,” led to widespread public discourse on image ownership and garnered over one million views within twenty-four hours, and was the magazine’s most-read piece of the year. My Body is her first book.

.
Since 2017, Ratajkowski has successfully translated her more than 26 million followers on Instagram into a successful direct-to-consumer business via her apparel line, Inamorata. As a model, she has appeared on the covers of major fashion/lifestyle magazines and is currently the face of L’Oréal’s hair care line Kerastase. As an actress, she has appeared in multiple films, including David Fincher’s Gone Girl and alongside Amy Schumer in I Feel Pretty. Ratajkowski is also outspoken politically, continually using her platform to advocate for her political beliefs, having campaigned for Bernie Sanders in both 2016 and 2020.

.
In April 2021, she announced that she was NFT’ing a conceptual art piece via a Christie’s auction, raising questions about the nature of authorship, specifically when it comes to the digital realm, while figuratively returning an appropriated Instagram post to its digitally native terrain. Building upon her New York magazine essay, the auction amplified the dialogue surrounding women controlling their image and the ability to receive rightful compensation for its usage and distribution.

.
Elaine Welteroth
 is an award-winning journalist, New York Times bestselling author, producer, and judge on Bravo’s Project Runway. She is known for her work at the helm of Teen Vogue, where in 2016 she was appointed the youngest ever Editor-in-Chief at a Conde Nast publication and used her position to prioritize diversity and social justice coverage. Prior to stepping into the role, she served as the first Black Beauty Director in Condé Nast’s 100-plus-year history. She’s now a leading expert and advocate for the next generation of changemakers. She was recently named Editor-at-Large of Complex and Verizon’s new digital magazine In The Know where she oversees all covers and leads culture-shifting conversations speaking directly to the intersectional interests of Gen-Z. 

.
“In prose that is by turns honey smooth and vicious, uproarious and wounded, Emily Ratajkowski has captured the complicated terrain of having a body people want to sell while having her own agenda she refuses to give up. She knows the pain that lives in every woman and she isn’t afraid to link arms and say she’s been there, and that it hurts. This is the book for all women trying to place their bodies on the map of consumption versus control, and all who want to better understand their impulses. It left me much changed.”
Lena Dunham, author of Not That Kind of Girl

.
My Body
 is a profoundly personal exploration of feminism, sexuality, and power, of men’s treatment of women and women’s rationalizations for accepting that treatment. These essays chronicle moments from Ratajkowski’s life while investigating the culture’s fetishization of girls and female beauty, its obsession with and contempt for women’s sexuality, the perverse dynamics of the fashion and film industries, and the grey area between consent and abuse.
.
Nuanced, unflinching, and incisive, My Body marks the debut of a fierce writer brimming with courage and intelligence.

“Tana French is… like a poet. She writes beautifully…If you haven’t read her yet, I really highly recommend that you do.” —Harlan Coben
.

Tana French is the author of seven previous books, including In the Woods, The Likeness, and The Witch Elm. Her novels have sold over three million copies and won numerous awards, including the Edgar, Anthony, Macavity and Barry Awards, the Los Angeles Times Award for Best Mystery/Thriller, and the Irish Book Award for Crime Fiction. She lives in Dublin with her family.

.

“This hushed suspense tale about thwarted dreams of escape may be her best one yet…its own kind of masterpiece.” –Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post

.
Her first novel to feature an American protagonist, THE SEARCHER is a Western-inspired mystery rich with Tana French’s powerhouse characterizations and atmospherics. It’s why The New York Times proclaimed, “she is in a class by herself.”

.
Cal Hooper thought a fixer-upper in a bucolic Irish village would be the perfect escape. After twenty-five years in the Chicago police force and a bruising divorce, he just wants to build a new life in a pretty spot with a good pub where nothing much happens. But when a local kid whose brother has gone missing arm-twists him into investigating, Cal uncovers layers of darkness beneath his picturesque retreat, and starts to realize that even small towns shelter dangerous secrets.
.
“One of the greatest crime novelists writing today” (Vox) weaves a masterful, atmospheric tale of suspense, asking what we sacrifice in our search for truth and justice, and what we risk if we don’t.

.
Jamie Lee Curtis
has demonstrated her versatility as a film actress, starring in acclaimed films such as the blockbuster True Lies, for which she won a Golden Globe Award; Trading Places, for which she earned a BAFTA (British Film Academy Award) for Best Supporting Actress; A Fish Called Wanda, for which she received duel Best Actress nominations from BAFTA and the Golden Globes; and the Disney feature film Freaky Friday, for which she received a Golden Globe nomination. It was her portrayal of Laurie Strode in Halloween, which was her film debut and brought her to the attention of audiences worldwide. 40 years later, in 2018, Curtis reprieved that signature role in David Gordon Green’s record-breaking horror feature, Halloween, produced by horror guru Jason Blum. Halloween’s opening weekend was the biggest debut ever, for any movie in any genre, to feature a female lead character over 55 years of age. The second film in the trilogy Halloween Kills will be released in October.    In 2015, Curtis returned to her horror roots, starring in two seasons of the Ryan Murphy-created TV series Scream Queens, for which she received a Golden Globe nomination. In 2019 Curtis appeared in the smash hit Knives Out.

.
Most recently, Curtis completed filming Borderlands alongside Cate Blanchett and Kevin Hart.  This highly anticipated feature is  based on the best-selling video game. Curtis is also a  New York Times best-selling children’s book author having written 13 books.   In addition, Curtis launched 3  major projects in 2020: the website myhandinyours.com, which offers items of comfort and celebration with 100% of the sales proceeds benefiting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, the Audible podcast Letters From Camp, which Curtis both co created, produces and appears in and returned for a second season June 24 and the iHeart Radio podcast Good Friend which Jamie hosts and features unscripted and relatable conversations about the good, bad and ugly of friendships.  This podcast debuted on July 15.

Kal Penn recounts why he rejected the advice of his aunties and guidance counselors and, instead of becoming a doctor or “something practical,” embarked on a surprising journey that has included acting, writing, working as a farmhand, teaching Ivy League University courses, and smoking fake weed with a fake President of the United States, before serving the country and advising a real one.
.

Kal Penn has played leading roles in some of the world’s most-watched television shows, including How I Met Your Mother24Designated SurvivorHouse, and more. He currently stars in the CBS series Clarice, a sequel to Silence of the Lambs, and the Disney Junior animated series Mira, Royal Detective. He was also the cocreator and star of the NBC/Universal comedy Sunnyside, and host, cocreator, and executive producer of a six-episode series in October 2020 for Disney’s Freeform Channel called Kal Penn Approves This Message, aimed at entertaining and informing young voters. On the big screen, Kal has starred in movies that have collectively grossed more than a billion dollars, including the Harold and Kumar franchise, National Lampoon’s Van WilderSuperman ReturnsThe Namesake, and many other critically acclaimed blockbuster titles. He has also served as an Adjunct Lecturer in Sociology and Film Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, and in Sociology and Political Science at the University of California, Los Angeles. Kal has worked at the very highest levels of politics, as an Associate Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, where he was President Obama’s Liaison to Young Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, and the Arts communities in America. He was born and raised in New Jersey.
.
Jon Favreau is co-founder of Pod Save America. He served as Barack Obama’s head speechwriter from 2005-2013, a role that was far more senior and influential than Jon Lovett’s. Since leaving the White House, Favreau has written and spoken about politics and speechwriting to audiences throughout the world. In 2017, he co-founded Crooked Media, where he’s a co-host of Pod Save America and host of The Wilderness. Jon grew up outside of Boston, graduated from the College of the Holy Cross, and now lives in Los Angeles with his wife Emily, their son Charlie, and their dog Leo.
 
“It’s crazy to me that a groundbreaking actor like Kal Penn is also so funny, humble, and down-to-earth. His life is fascinating and his book is wonderful.”
– MINDY KALING, New York Times bestselling author of Why Not Me?Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns), and Nothing Like I Imagined (Except for Sometimes)

“Kal Penn’s journey is insightful, funny, and instructive for anyone who’s ever grappled with how they fit into the American dream.”
– RONAN FARROWNew York Times bestselling author of Catch and Kill and War on Peace
.

You Can’t Be Serious is a series of funny, consequential, awkward, and ridiculous stories from Kal’s idiosyncratic life. It’s about being the grandson of Gandhian freedom fighters, and the son of immigrant parents: people who came to this country with very little and went very far—and whose vision of the American dream probably never included their son sliding off an oiled-up naked woman in a raunchy Ryan Reynolds movie…or getting a phone call from Air Force One as Kal flew with the country’s first Black president.
.

With intelligence, humor, and charm on every page, Kal reflects on the most exasperating and rewarding moments from his journey so far. He pulls back the curtain on the nuances of opportunity and racism in the entertainment industry and recounts how he built allies, found encouragement, and dealt with early reminders that he might never fit in. And of course, he reveals how, after a decade and a half of fighting for and enjoying successes in Hollywood, he made the terrifying but rewarding decision to take a sabbatical from a fulfilling acting career for an opportunity to serve his country as a White House aide.

.

Above all, You Can’t Be Serious shows that everyone can have more than one life story. Kal demonstrates by example that no matter who you are and where you come from, you have many more choices than those presented to you. It’s a story about struggle, triumph, and learning how to keep your head up. And okay, yes, it’s also about how he accidentally (and very stupidly) accepted an invitation to take the entire White House Office of Public Engagement to a strip club—because, let’s be honest, that’s the kind of stuff you really want to hear about.

Steve Roberts, Nina Totenberg and Martha Raddatz with Judy Woodruff

Join us for a virtual Live Talks Los Angeles event:
Tuesday, November 2, 2021
6:00pm PST/ 9pm EST 
 
 
Steve Roberts, Nina Totenberg and Martha Raddatz
with Judy Woodruff
 
discussing his book,
Cokie: A Life Well Lived
.

This event premieres on November 2, 2021 at 6pm PDT/9pm EDT

.

The extraordinary life and legacy of legendary journalist Cokie Roberts—a trailblazer for women—remembered by her friends and family.

.
Steven V. Roberts
has been a journalist for more than 50 years. He is the author of My Father’s House and From This Day Forward, which he co-wrote with Cokie. He is the chief political analyst for the ABC radio network, a professor of journalism and politics at George Washington University, and a nationally-syndicated columnist. He lives in the home in suburban Washington that Cokie grew up in and they shared for 44 years.

.
Nina Totenberg
 is NPR’s award-winning legal affairs correspondent. Her reports air regularly on NPR’s critically acclaimed newsmagazines All Things Considered, Morning Edition, and Weekend Edition. Totenberg’s coverage of the Supreme Court and legal affairs has won her widespread recognition.  NPR received the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award for its gavel-to-gavel coverage — anchored by Totenberg — of both the original hearings and the inquiry into Anita Hill’s allegations, and for Totenberg’s reports and exclusive interview with Hill.

.

Martha Raddatz is ABC News chief global affairs correspondent and co-anchor of “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.” She has covered national security, foreign policy and politics for decades – reporting from the Pentagon, the State Department, the White House and conflict zones around the world.

.

Judy Woodruff is the anchor and managing editor of the PBS NewsHour. She has covered politics and other news for five decades at NBC, CNN and PBS. At PBS she was the chief Washington correspondent for the MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour. She also anchored PBS’ award-winning documentary series, “Frontline with Judy Woodruff.” At CNN in, she served as anchor and senior correspondent for 12 years; among other duties, she anchored the weekday program “Inside Politics.” She returned to the NewsHour in 2007, and in 2013, she and the late Gwen Ifill were named the first two women to co-anchor a national news broadcast. After Ifill’s death, Woodruff was named sole anchor.

.

“She was a trailblazing figure; a role model to young women at a time when the profession was still dominated by men; a constant over forty years of a shifting media landscape and changing world, informing voters about the issues of our time and mentoring young journalists every step of the way.” –President Barack Obama

.
Through her visibility and celebrity, Cokie Roberts was an inspiration and a role model for innumerable women and girls. A fixture on national television and radio for more than 40 years, she also wrote five bestselling books focusing on the role of women in American history. She was portrayed on Saturday Night Live, name checked on the West Wing, and featured on magazine covers. She joked with Jay Leno, balanced a pencil on her nose for David Letterman, and was the answer to numerous crossword puzzle clues. Many dogs, and at least one dairy cow, were named for her. When the legendary 1980s Spy Magazine ran a diagram documenting all her connections with the headline “Cokie Roberts – Moderately Well-Known Broadcast Journalist or Center of the Universe?” they were only half-joking.

.
Cokie had many roles in her lifetime: Daughter. Wife. Mother. Journalist. Advocate. Historian. Reflecting on her life, those closest to her remember her impressive mind, impish wit, infectious laugh, and the tenacity that sent her career skyrocketing through glass ceilings at NPR and ABC. They marvel at how she often put others before herself and cared deeply about the world around her. When faced with daily decisions and dilemmas, many still ask themselves the question, ‘What Would Cokie Do?’

.
In this loving tribute, Cokie’s husband of 53 years and bestselling-coauthor Steve Roberts reflects not only on her many accomplishments, but on how she lived each day with a devotion to helping others. For Steve, Cokie’s private life was as significant and inspirational as her public one. Her commitment to celebrating and supporting other women was evident in everything she did, and her generosity and passion drove her personal and professional endeavors. In Cokie, he has a simple goal: “To tell stories. Some will make you cheer or laugh or cry. And some, I hope, will inspire you to be more like Cokie, to be a good person, to lead a good life.”

Together: Memorable Meals Made Easy
.

Together feels more poignant in 2021 than ever before. What we’ve been through, collectively, is very unusual, and I think a lot of us have realized that perhaps we took some of life’s simple pleasures for granted. Being together is precious. To be in a loved one’s presence, to see their face light up, share memories and laugh out loud together, that’s what life is truly all about. And the joyful, amazing thing about food is that it can be anything you want it to be. It can nourish, sustain, help to heal, be fast or convenient, comforting, fun, surprising, or an adventure. But maybe, in its simplest form, it works as an excuse to bring the people you love together. This book is dedicated to just that.” — Jamie Oliver

.
Welcome friends and family back around your table with Jamie Oliver’s brand-new cookbook, Together – a joyous celebration of incredible food to share.
.
Being with our loved ones has never felt so important, and great food is the perfect excuse to get together. Each chapter features a meal, from seasonal feasts to curry nights, with a simple, achievable menu that can be mostly prepped ahead.
.
Jamie’s aim – whether you’re following the full meal or choosing just one of the 130 individual recipes – is to minimize your time in the kitchen so you can maximize the time you spend with your guests.
.
Jamie’s Together also helps to take the stress out of cooking by arming you with tips, tricks, and hacks to stay organized and get ahead of the game.
.
Inspirational but practical, Together is about comfort, celebration, creating new memories, and, above all, sharing fantastic food.
.
This is about memorable meals, made easy. Let’s dig in – together!
