The writers will be on hand to talk about their book “Worth Repeating,” which compiles the very best of their work over the years, plus their bonus commentary. Marianne, Maury and Sally will be taking questions from the audience and talking about their favorite columns and the responses (the good, bad and sometimes odd!) they’ve received from readers. Copies of “Worth Repeating,” will also be available for purchase.
