The Chapters Rap Podcast with Camille Perri
May 8, 2017 @ 7:00 pm
We’ll be chatting with author Camille Perri about her novel, The Assistants, that made a huge splash with glowing reviews from People, Elle, O Magazine, Vanity Fair, Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping, Us Weekly, the New York Times Book Review, the New York Post, the Associated Press, TheSkimm, The Hollywood Reporter, and more.. With a razor sharp voice full of wry humor, The Assistants is a rallying cry for the leagues of overeducated and underpaid women who are asking themselves, “How is it that after all these years, we are still assistants?” Camille Perri has worked as a books editor for Cosmopolitan and Esquire and, earlier in her career, was a ghostwriter of young adult novels, a fiction reader for The Paris Review, and a reference librarian. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from New York University and a Master of Library Science degree from Queens College. Perri wrote the first draft of The Assistants while working as the assistant to the editor-in-chief of Esquire. Copies will be available for purchase.
