Bestselling author of Divorce Diva, Marci Darling, will hold a book signing at luxury shop Alice and Olivia on May 15; proceeds will be donated to Bette Midler’s New York Restoration Project.

Ms. Darling – author of two acclaimed mystery novels and Divorce Diva, ranked #1 on Amazon’s Humor lists – will read from the book as well as sign copies at Alice and Olivia, 755 Madison Ave on May 15, 2021, 2-6pm.

Says New York Times bestselling author Leslie Zemeckis of Ms. Darling’s work, “A witty and heartbreaking novel, well-written and moving. I was not prepared to fall so in love with this book of vignettes about one woman’s journey through an unexpected divorce. Darling’s irresistible, relentless quest for happiness and her own truth will uplift you and make you laugh and you just might want to buy a tutu.”

Divorce Diva tells the inspiring story of Marci Darling, who in one year lost her father to cancer, her marriage to infidelity, and her best friend to suicide. With witty essays like transforming his half of the closet into pink sparkles, selling her jewels and taking her children on the Orient Express; a Revenge Body fueled by pumpkin muffins; and wondering why her lawyer quit because she offered to pay him in fairy dust; Ms. Darling writes about navigating grief with hope, humor, and chutzpah.

Keeping with Ms. Darling’s commitment to empowering women, copies of Divorce Diva have been donated to homeless shelters in Boston – where Ms. Darling is based – and given to homeless women going through divorce.

Alice and Olivia will be rolling out the pink carpet with bubbles, dancing girls, and the author herself dressed in pink feathers.

Christy Sousa, manager of Alice and Olivia, says, “We’re delighted to host Marci Darling and play a small part in raising funds for Bette Midler’s New York Restoration Project.”
