Andy Cohen @ WORD in Jersey City

superficial-cover

Meet Andy Cohen and get a signed copy of his new book “Superficial” at WORD Bookstore (123 Newark Ave.) in Jersey City on Tuesday, November 15th at 7pm.

The Bravo TV host and executive producer of the “Real Housewives” franchise (and pretty much the mastermind behind everything awesome that I binge-watch) will be in house at WORD. Andy Cohen will be signing books (personalized) and taking photos in celebration of “Superficial.” The book details Andy’s personal and professional experiences, as well as Andy’s accounts of behind-the-scenes drama, antics and adventures—peppered with his own unfiltered thoughts. #nojudgment 😉

All attendees must purchase a ticket. Each ticket guarantees a spot in the signing line and 1 copy of Superficial signed by Andy Cohen. Buy your tickets here.

See you there,
JCG
