Liz Pryor will discuss Look at You Now: My Journey from Shame to Strength

EVENT OVERVIEW:  Liz Pryor will Present her New Hardcover Memoir Look at You Now: My Journey from Shame to Strength.  This is a Complimentary OPEN House Event.  Liz Pryor is the Life Advice Guru for ABC's Good Morning America.  Liz is a Graduate of the University of Kansas (KU), and she now lives in California.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Liz Pryor grew up in a small suburb outside Chicago and has spent the last five years devoted to helping and commiserating women on her website. She runs her own chat rooms, answers questions, and rants weekly about the insanity and hilarity of everyday life. She contributes as a friendship expert to most of the women's magazines in the country, and for the last year has written an online parenting column for the national baby products company Munchkin. She guests regularly as a go-to girlfriend, dispensing advice, on Leeza Gibbon's nationally syndicated radio show "Hollywood Confidential." Liz lives in Sherman Oaks with her three teenaged children. Most recently, Liz applied along with more than fifteen thousand other Americans for the full-time Advice Guru position on ABC's Good Morning America... and won!

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  In 1979, Liz Pryor is a seventeen-year-old girl from a good family in the wealthy Chicago suburbs. Halfway through her senior year of high school, she discovers that she is pregnant: a fact her parents are determined to keep a secret from her friends, siblings, and community forever. One snowy January day, after driving across three states, her mother drops her off at what Liz thinks is a Catholic home for unwed mothers but which is, in truth, a locked government-run facility for delinquent and impoverished pregnant teenage girls. In the cement-block residence, Liz is alone and terrified, a fish out of water; a girl from a privileged, sheltered background living amid tough, street-savvy girls who come from the foster care system or juvenile detention. But over the next six months, isolated and in involuntary hiding from everyone she knows, Liz develops a surprising bond with the other girls and begins to question everything she once held true. Told with tenderness, humor, and an open heart, Look at You Now is a deeply moving story about the most vulnerable moments in our lives and how a willingness to trust ourselves can permanently change who we are and how we see the world.
