Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 20, 2011
Quin Woodward Pu, the preeminent writer of all things cosmopolitan and fabulous, will be debuting her first novel, a memoir, titled Type A+. The invite-only book launch party and signing will take place at SimplySoles, Georgetown’s premiere shoe boutique, on August 24th.
When Quin Woodward Pu—a straight-A Asian-American extrovert from Georgia with a penchant for vodka, designer shoes, and older men—receives her acceptance letter from Johns Hopkins Medical School, she is forced to make a decision between giving up her hard-partying, man-eating ways and continuing her fabulous VIP lifestyle and pursuing a more glitzy and glamorous career.
Type A+ is the memoir of her transition from MCAT-teaching pre-med free clinic volunteer to directionless, yet fabulous and resourceful, freelance writer. Like many Asian-Americans, she butts heads with her first-generation Chinese father when she strays from his life plan for her to attend a top medical program. She is encouraged by her histrionic but loyal friends—from an undiagnosed alcoholic roommate, to a bohemian BFFL, to a middle-aged playboy dermatologist boyfriend —to follow her champagne-soaked dreams of becoming a journalist.
The star-studded party promises to draw the area’s most visionary writers, thinkers, and society notables for an evening of refined frivolity and intelligent company. Located on Georgetown’s upscale M Street, SimplySoles is the perfect venue for the launch of Type A+. Guests will enjoy sumptuous nibbles and bubbly in one of The District’s largest retail spaces, while Handehoch, a DC-based DJ, will keep the atmosphere festive and celebratory.
Following the launch party and signing, an after party will be held at the exclusive L2 Lounge of Cady’s Alley. With its distinguished culture-spanning ambiance, this lounge is perfectly suited for sophisticated Washingtonians who enjoy tall designer drinks as much as they do tall designer shoes, and bourbon as smooth as their supple Italian leather briefcases.
SimplySoles is located on the second floor of 3222 M Street NW. L2 Lounge is located at 3315 Cady’s Alley NW.
