PITTSBURGH (November 1, 2010) … The producers of Rosalind Wiseman’s Girl World Book Tour have announced that tickets are still available for this special Mother-Daughter event on Friday, November 5 from 7-9 p.m. at Chatham University’s Campbell Memorial Chapel. In partnership with Joseph-Beth Booksellers and Chatham University, the Girl World Book Tour is an interactive, 90-minute mother-daughter workshop that engages parents and girls in conversation and laughter about common triumphs and challenges during the tween and teen years.

The $40 per mother-daughter pair includes: admission to the event, one copy of each of Rosalind’s latest books, and a gift bag featuring free samples of Dove go fresh deodorant and information from local partners. Tickets are available at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in-store at 510 South 27th Street on Pittsburgh’s South Side, or over the phone at 412-381-3600.

In addition to celebrating Rosalind’s latest books, the tour will feature an interactive discussion about confidence, friendships, common mother-daughter challenges, and concrete strategies for parents and girls to navigate conflicts with dignity. A Q&A session and book signing will follow. The two-hour event is sure to get mothers and daughters talking, laughing and connecting.
