Margot Bisnow Book Launch Aug. 31!
Yes, the former publisher of the Scene, Margot Bisnow, here with her son Elliott and husband Mark, has a new gig: book author! She’s starting her national book tour at 7pm on Wednesday, Aug. 31, at Politics & Prose at 5015 Connecticut Ave NW in DC. And she’ll be bringing a very special guest—read on.
Her book is based on interviews with 60 entrepreneurs and their moms, a number from the DC area, like the moms of Blackboard founder Michael Chasen, Under Armour founder Kevin Plank, Nantucket Nectars founder Tommy Scott, and songwriter Benny Blanco, and entrepreneurs like Cvent founder Reggie Aggarwal, PR maven Erica Gutierrez and webMethods co-founder Caren Merrick. Margot organizes her findings into 10 rules, and, in an easy-to-read style, weaves in the colorful stories of the entrepreneurs to illustrate them.
At some of her book talks across the country, Margot will bring with her entrepreneurs' moms she interviewed, who will join the conversation. With her at Politics and Prose on Aug. 31 will be the remarkable Jayne Plank, above with her son, Under Armour founder Kevin Plank. The book is being published Sept. 1 by New Harbinger and is available for pre-order on Amazon and Barnes & Noble and your favorite independent bookstore. Profits will go to charity to help low-income families learn about entrepreneurship. Hope to see you Aug. 31!
