Join Barnes & Noble - Upper West Side on Tuesday, September 19 th at 6 PM ET, as we welcome author, Carrie Berk, for a signing and talk with Matty Maggiacomo  celebrating the release of MY REAL-LIFE ROM COMCarrie shares her dating adventures (and misadventures) to help you discover more about yourself and the relationship you deserve. How do you meet someone in a post-pandemic world? Are dating apps a good idea? When do you know if you’re really ready for sex? My Real-Life Rom-Com is filled with helpful information on everything from first kisses to devastating breakups. What if you develop a crush on your best friend’s ex? Or you’re catching feelings for an older guy? Carrie has been there, done that. Through Carrie’s unflinchingly honest stories, you’ll learn how to get over your first breakup; understand the art of the “situationship;” make smart, not impulsive decisions; and ultimately love yourself before loving someone else.
