Kristen Panzer Always Gets Her Book

class=Rachel Louchen reports from Millerton. Both bookworms and wine connoisseurs gathered at No.9 Restaurant in Millerton on Friday, March 29, to listen to author Kristen Panzer (at left) read from her new book, Thea Gallas Always Gets Her Man. Thea Gallas, a self-published novel, follows the life of a lactation consultant and mother, pregnant with her fourth child, who suspects a murder in her Boston neighborhood. The book took 25 years to write, Panzer says, adding, “My kids are freaked out because they think this is autobiographical!” (Panzer and her novel’s heroine share the same occupation.) The guests who attended the reading included friends, family, and even mothers who have used Panzer’s services. Curious readers peeked in as well. Panzer is already planning her next work, teasing everyone in the room, “My next book will be hotter. I held back this time.”

Hillel Lowinsky with the author’s husband, John Panzer; Nikki Johnston, Amanda Forbes, and No. 9 owner, Taryn Cocheo, who hosted the event.

Gallery Arts Guild co-director Alexis Savage and boyfriend, Sam Lundeen, of Amenia Union; Millerton resident Olivia Runge with Bob Beach.

Kristen Panzer with her copy editor, Robin O’Connor, whom she credited for her professional and emotional help with the book.

Maddie Fuller and Gina Fuller came out to support their longtime friend; the author signs a copy of her book for reader Bowie Zunino, founder of the Wassaic Project.

One of the evening’s hosts, Mimi Ramos Harney, with Breanne Trammell and Betsey McCall; graphic designer Alana Mulligan with Kyle Ellis.

Richard Lanka, Rick Trabucco, and Jonathan Bee.
