To kick off the launch of the book tour, Tracy Beckerman, author of Lost in Suburbia and Holly Rosen Fink of Culture Mom Media hosted a "Cool Mom Book and Blow Dry Bar Tour" Party at the Fix Beauty Bar here in New York City.
During the event I had the chance to speak with Tracy about her book and upcoming tour. Tracy shared that the idea behind the book came to her a few years back but the story and issue are still very current relateable. While Tracy does write about her kids, they are not the focus. Its more about telling her story of what happened when she traded city life for life in the suburbs
When syndicated columnist Tracy Beckerman trades in her TV job and cool NYC existence for the New Jersey suburbs, she doesn’t expect to also trade in her entire identity. But her new life as a stay-at-home mom knocks her for a loop in more ways than one.
Beckerman reveals the universal trials, tribulations, and triumphs of every mom who has to figure out how to stay sane while fishing Barbie heads out of the toilet; how to laugh when your kid asks the fat cop at the doughnut shop if he’s having a baby; and how to look good when your post-baby butt is so big you want to hang a “Caution: Wide Load” sign behind you.
At once irreverent, hilarious, and keenly observed, Lost in Suburbia is about what you give up to become a mother—and what you get back.
After speaking with Tracy I joined the other guest to enjoy treats and drinks as well as pampering treatments. Guest enjoyed manicures, hair blows outs and styling and fun activities like getting tattoos.
The Suburbia Book Tour will continue with more blow dry bar events in different cities. Check the website to see when the book tour will be in your area - http://lostinsuburbiablog.com
