Book launch: I WANTED FRIES WITH THAT: How to Ask for What You Want and Get What You Need
Author and Concordia University Ombudsman Amy Fish celebrates the launch of her new book, which encourages readers to stand up for themselves by communicating effectively. Her suggestions will appeal to anyone who wants to speak up and isn’t sure where to start, including managers navigating workplace disputes, couples who argue about the same things over and over, and even someone with a friend with bad breath. Illustrating her points with funny real-life stories, Fish reveals pragmatic methods to redress grievances with civility, honesty, and fairness for everyone involved — whether you’re trying to right the wrongs of the world or just claim the French fries you ordered. The event includes a conversation, a signing, refreshments and (with $23.95 ticket) the book. The event is a co-presentation by Drawn and Quarterly Bookstore and the Jewish Public Library.
