Writers on the Row, is a weekend-long festival celebrating food, fashion, fame and more in books from renowned authors. The event runs from Thursday, October 11 through Sunday, October 14. Of course, I had to tell you about the fashionable reads (not to mention their fashionable authors) that will be included in the weekend’s events.

Friday, October 12 kicks off with a signing and Q&A by celebrity maternity concierge and star of Bravo TV’s Pregnant in Heels, Rosie Pope, for the release of her new book, Mommy IQ, from 6:30-8:30pm.

Not only does Pope offer a prenatal, postpartum and parenting education class at her MomPrep studio in New York City, she is the creative mastermind behind the stylish and sophisticated Rosie Pope Maternity clothing line.

Sunday, October 14, from 3-5pm, authors behind the hit Capital Girls by Ella Monroe, Marilyn “Maz” Rauber and Amy Reingold, will sign copies of their popular young adult books, dubbed “Gossip Girl, but Washington-ized” by The Washington Post, and read a passage from the first book in the series.

The local authors, influenced by their own history living in Washington, DC, write under the pseudonym Ella Monroe about a group of young, fashionable DC socialites dealing with love, betrayal and friendship, all with a political twist.

Both signings will be taking place on Bethesda Lane. All books will be available for purchase on site.
