Stephanie Danler

Stephanie Danler will speak about her New York Times bestseller Sweetbitter. The debut novel garnered international attention just one week after its release.

Hailing from California, Danler worked in the fast-paced and often chaotic Manhattan restaurant life as a graduate student at The New School.  Seven years in the making, Sweetbitter is a thrilling novel of the senses and a coming-of-age tale, following a small-town girl into the electrifying world of New York City and the education of a lifetime at one of the most exclusive restaurants in Manhattan.  Perfect for readers of Kitchen Confidential and Blood, Bones and Butter.
