It’s been a long time coming, but LOL-Laughing Out Loud is out!

Featuring Demi Moore, Miley Cyrus, Ashley Greene, Douglas Booth, Thomas Jane, Marlo Thomas and…Chicago author Delphine Pontvieux, LOL is a fresh coming-of-age story for modern times.

You are invited to Beauty Bar on Wednesday, August 8, to watch the movie with Pontvieux and friends.

drinks 5 to 7 pm
screening of the movie at 7 pm

As always, at Beauty Bar, 10 dollars get you a cocktail and a manicure!

For more information:

1444 W Chicago Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60622

What is LOL about:
In a world connected by YouTube, iTunes, and Facebook, Lola and her friends navigate the peer pressures of high school romance and friendship while dodging their sometimes overbearing and confused parents. When Lola’s mom, Anne, “accidentally” reads her teenage daughter’s racy journal, she realizes just how wide their communication gap has grown.

Ms Loyel attended the past ‘two with water reading series’ at the Beauty bar in Chicago back in November.

She talks about the night and the writers’ work in her blog “Bonne Caroline Bonne Gamine.” You can also watch a video of Delphine Pontvieux’s reading at the end.

It’s all here!

2011 is already well into its 4th quarter, which makes us realize what they say is true:

time flies when we’re having fun!

And we are thankful for that.

So this month, it is time to give our thanks to all of you who supported us one way or another, either by purchasing a book, attending a book signing or a reading with Delphine Pontvieux, choosing her novel for your next book club meeting, or just passing on the word about ETA-Estimated Time of Arrest, Pintxatu, Amsterdamned if you do and/or American Wasteland to your friends.

We have several events planned throughout the month which are taking place either right here on the world wide web or in Chicago, with more to be added as they get confirmed, so read on and mark your calendars!

ONLINE EVENTS :
