27 September 2016 (San Francisco, CA) – Tonight, H5M kicks off a three-city tour to promote Andrews McMeel Publishing’s first-time author Sarah Cooper and her first book, 100 Tricks To Appear Smart In Meetings. Tonight’s appearance at WeWork Civic Center is sold out and is anticipated to be the WeWork event of the year.
“We’re thrilled to be able to host our client, Andrews McMeel, and to help launch Sarah Cooper’s first book, right here in our home office,” said Alycen McAuley, Managing Director for H5M. “Sarah is an extraordinary talent and her humor really hits the nail on the head for what life in corporate America – and meetings – are like today. Fans from her blog will, I’m sure, revel in the chance to meet Sarah in person and hear her comedy come to life.”
Andrews McMeel has also partnered with local booksellers to bring the book itself to the event, allowing fans to secure a copy even before it hits stores, in some cases.
