June 28, 2021 in Virtual Event

Join Doree Shafrir, author of the memoir Thanks for Waiting and co-host of the Forever35 podcast, for Worth the Wait: A Launch Party for Thanks for Waiting, a two-night virtual book launch party, brought to you by Well Enough, Random House’s wellness community.

Held on June 28 and 29, from 8pm to 10pm ET each night, Worth the Wait: A Launch Party for Thanks for Waiting will feature a series of special guests in conversation with Doree about self-care, fertility, motherhood, work, and living life at your own speed, plus expert insights on topics like skincare, money, and fashion. Joining Doree on the virtual stage will be: Maurene Goo, Jasmine Guillory, Elizabeth Holmes, Kate Spencer, Logan Ury, Courtney Chiusano, Emily Farris, Rachel Wilkerson Miller, and Tonya Rapley.

In the spirit of living at your own pace, two ticket types are available: With the $35.28 ticket, you will receive an autographed, personalized hardcover copy of Thanks for Waiting, the chance to chat with Doree live, and access to the VIP Zoom afterparty. With a free registration, you won’t receive a book or admission to the launch party, but you will receive free access to the livestream of the event.

Each person who signs up will receive the Well Enough newsletter, which features helpful tips for wherever you are on your wellness journey, and the Random House Events newsletter, so you won’t miss the next great conversation. All attendees will also receive a 15% off discount code from our partner, Tatcha.

Don’t wait (in this instance only!)—save your spot today!

Book orders will be fulfilled and shipped by our indie bookstore partner, Book Soup (based in California). Books will ship after the event. Please be sensitive to the workload of our independent bookstore partner: It may take a couple weeks to receive your book, but your support of this bookstore is so important and will not go unnoticed. The pandemic has not been kind to small and local businesses. Every book purchase helps.

Tatcha is a true story of harmony and transformation. In 2008, Vicky Tsai encountered classical beauty rituals in Kyoto that forever altered her life. The pure, natural formulas and philosophy of harmony healed her acute dermatitis and helped her regain balance inside and out. Founded the following year, Tatcha creates sensorial rituals that care for you, gently transform your skin and elevate your senses by pairing timeless traditions with emerging research. A portion of every Tatcha purchase supports global children’s education equality through a partnership with Room to Read, funding over 5.5 million days of school to date. The Tatcha collection is available globally at select retailers. For additional information, please visit Tatcha.com.
