Emily Post’s EtiquetteNovember 7, 2011
Manners for a New World, is the tag line of the 18th edition of “Emily Post’s Etiquette” which has just been released. I created a window around our stack of copies. In our rushed world, manners are now even more crucial, as they make us slow down a bit, and make us think of others.
We are delighted to be hosting a book signing by one of the authors, Anna Post, this Wednesday evening. Tickets for the event are still available thru www.giltcity.com/seattle It will be a fun, festive evening of bubbly, nibbles, and a signed copy of the book, along with a brief presentation by Anna Post.
My Mother always had a copy of an Emily Post book at the ready when I was growing up, and I have always done the same. It is a great reference guide to many of life’s little questions revolving around etiquette and manners.
If you can’t join us for the event, signed copies will still be available, so we would be happy to ship or hold one for you.
I received many requests from the post yesterday about what the menu was for the evening. Look for it in an upcoming post this week. It was a yummy, simple meal that I look forward to sharing with you.
