Author event with Jordan Christy author of How To Be a Hepburn in a Kardashian World

Parnassus Books is excited to welcome Jordan Christy as she discusses and signs How To Be a Hepburn in a Kardashian World.

Since How To Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World was published in 2009, a lot in our world has changed. A new crop of celebutantes are seizing the spotlight—Paris Hilton (remember her?) has been replaced by the Kardashian sisters. But what hasn't changed is the wisdom of considering others, being gracious, and behaving in a way that people respect. 

In this new and fully updated edition of Jordan Christy's modern classic book on etiquette, Jordan addresses the concerns of a whole new generation of late-teen and twenty-something women. In new chapters she'll give advice on how to navigate the pitfalls of social media and explore how to develop self-acceptance and self-confidence. She'll also address the number one question she receives at her many speaking engagements at high schools, colleges, and sororities—how to land an internship and your first job in today's competitive market.

“Love them or hate them, [The Kardashians] have collectively, and individually, absorbed their share of scrutiny. Being the constant target of criticism and opinion is an enormous thing to work through, and for that, I admire them. Though their style may be different from mine, or Audrey Hepburn’s, they’re still human beings and deserve my respect. So, with that, this is not an “Us vs. Them” book—it’s not an argument for, or against, any one person. It’s not a guidebook on how to be perfect. It’s simply my attempt to go back and write the book I always wanted to—a book for any girl who’s ever felt like the only one.”     


Like the big sister you wish you had, Jordan provides sage advice in a way that's both understanding and fun, so readers will be loving a life of style, class in grace in no time!

A former music industry publicist who has worked with GRAMMY-award winning artists, Jordan Christy has been featured everywhere from NBC's TODAY Show to the Washington Times to Seventeen.com and has spoken to thousands of women around the country about the meaning of real beauty.
