Kevin C. Fitzpatrick, president of the Dorothy Parker Society, visits Book Soup to read from, discuss and sign his new book, "Under the Table: A Dorothy Parker Cocktail Guide."

From the event website:

"Under the Table" offers a unique take on Parker, the infamous Algonquin Round Table, and the Jazz Age by profiling and celebrating the drinks that she, her bitter friends, and sweetest enemies enjoyed and discussed. Each entry of this delicious compendium offers a fascinating and lively background of a period cocktail, its ingredients, and the characters associated with it. The book also features a special selection of twenty-first century speakeasy-style recipes from top mixologists from across the country.
The reading will be preceded by a two-hour tour of Parker's former homes and haunts in Hollywood and Beverly Hills.

Fitzpatrick will also be celebrating Parker's legacy and his new book at the L.A. Athletic Club on Dec. 12.
