A sassy group of women have contributed essays to the book The May Queen: Women on Life, Love, Work & Pulling it All Together in Your 30s and a passel of them will be in one place tonight. Actually, two places. First, at 7pm, head to Dutton's Brentwood for readings from the book and a panel discussion, which is sure to be lively, since Meghan Daum (who writes for the LA Times) and Erin Cressida Wilson (who wrote the screenplay for Secretary) will be among the contributors in the house. After the reading, there will be drinks at a place called Air Conditioned, about which this LAist contributor is completely clueless. But drinks plus books? That's good enough for us.
