Cocktails will begin at 5:30 PM with the reading scheduled for 7 PM. "Eating My Feelings," according to press notes, is "the hilarious tale of an overweight soon-to-be-gay 10 year old who is introduced to his new evil stepmother over bad eggrolls. Let the food issues begin. Follow Mark in this coming-of-age story that takes him through fat camp, a diet where he gets paid to lose weight and of course, high school. The self imagine issues continue in adulthood as Mark hires a menagerie of personal trainers, tries to emulate 'Julie and Julia' in order to get published and attempts to date while having an imaginary relationship with Tony Horton, the founder of the P90X workout program."
Rosenberg is also the author of "Blackouts and Breakdowns."
