Jeffrey Zaslow

New York Times best-selling author Jeffrey Zaslow returns to St. Louis for a literary event presented by the St. Louis Jewish Book Festival at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 22 at Plaza Frontenac, 1701 S. Lindbergh Boulevard.

Zaslow will share stories from his book “The Magic Room: A Story About the Love We Wish for Our Daughters,” which tells of a small-town bridal shop and the poignant secrets, life lessons, hopes and dreams its customers have passed onto their children over the decades.

The event is presented in partnership with Plaza Frontenac and Town & Country Bride and will feature bridal fashions, gift bags, treats from area restaurants including Fleming’s Steakhouse and raffle items from mall vendors. Seating and gift bags are limited.

Zaslow has co-authored numerous best-sellers, including “Highest Duty” (with airplane pilot Chesley Sullenberger); the #1 New York Times bestseller “The Last Lecture” (with former Carnegie Mellon professor Randy Pausch); and the recently released memoir “Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope,” (with Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly).

Tickets for the event are $15 and available by phone at 314-442-3299, or in person at the Jewish Community Center’s Box Office in the Arts & Education Building/Staenberg Family Complex, 2 Millstone Campus Drive in Creve Coeur.

The event is included free on the Festival’s Series PLUS Ticket.
