Book Event & Meet-Up at BabyCakes in New York City

This Wednesday, August 3rd, I’ll be at BabyCakes NYC for a get-together and book signing from 6-7:30pm.

It’s one of my favorite bakeries anywhere and Erin McKenna, the owner and head baker of BabyCakes, will also be on hand to sign copies of her newest book…

My books will be available, including Ready for Dessert, The Perfect Scoop, and as a special bonus, hardback copies of The Sweet Life in Paris will be available at the paperback price.* So stop by for a sweet treat…and to say hi!

(Although not required, if you can, please RSVP at the Facebook Event page so we have some idea how many folks to expect.)

*If you’re unable to attend and would like a personally signed book, you’re welcome to stop in the bakery in advance and reserve a copy for me to sign for you or as a gift.

  • Being allergic to gluten, Babycakes is -amazing- and seriously their cupcakes are better than the vast majority of gluten-based places in the city. But seriously, this store is small! can you even stretch your arms to sign a book in here?

  • Good luck with your book signing, to many more happy readers of your wonderful books!

  • I will be there with my copy of The Sweet Life! Looking forward to it and to finally trying one of those famous babycakes donuts!

  • SOunds like a sweet time,have fun!

  • I am so sad that I will miss the event as I slowly melt out here in the desert.
    I just called Babycakes and spoke to the super friendly Becca and made arrangements with her to get a signed hard-copy of The Sweet Life as well as Erin’s new book. I can’t wait to get my copies in the mail and get baking!

    Hope the signing goes well and enjoy your time in the big Apple!

  • Unluckily I have no friend like scottie from the U.S.S. Enterprise, so I will miss the event. Have a succesful time there, Paris is closer to me in my small german town.
    with best wishes,
    Sandy from Confiture de Vivre

  • Are you going to be doing any events on the weekend? We would be coming from about 2 hours north of NYC, so the weekend is easier to do. Would really like to see the face behind the great posts and recipes!

  • yes, but will there be dancing ?

    i have yet to get to babycakes, hope to one day. still, every time i hear about the shop, i can’t help but smile. it always makes me think of the video they did when the first cookbook came out: – seriously loved that.

    have fun !

  • I saw on your calendar that you will be in Berkeley for Chez Panisse’s 40th anniversary. Will you be holding a book signing there too? :)))

  • Joining Stephanie with the question: any plans for a book signing in San Francisco?

  • Great meeting you tonight! You should move to NYC and write a sequel to the Sweet Life :). Also, like I mentioned, if you are looking for something with a kick go to xi an famous foods in Chinatown or the east village. No affiliation, just addicted to their noodles and want to share the joy with you while you are here. Enjoy the rest of your stay!

  • I would have gone if I saw this post earlier. Darn.

  • So nice to meet you at Babycakes! Enjoyed exchanging the cultural difference of the New Yorker’s “Don’t cut the line!” with the Parisian’s “Line? What line!”

    Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip, with lots more tasty treats.

  • Hi David, I too saw this post too late. Will you hold another book event in New York City? Please do!

    • I do announce events in advance on my Facebook page, Twitter and in my newsletter as well, in addition to my Schedule page, for future reference. If you are in New York, there are signed books at Kitchen Arts & Letters, the Strand bookstore, and at BabyCakes.

  • DAMN! I gotta get into looking at your blog DAILY when I know you are getting NEAR New York! MISSED THE APPEARANCE! DAMN!

  • Sorry to have missed your appearance in NYC, but my good friend had her friend come and see you that night to sign and dedicate 2 books for us. He knew nothing about your work but wishes he did! Thanks! I hope to meet you next year when you return.
