From her her early readings, where she’d wear fabulous dresses and invoke the spirits of dead poets, to the autobiographical story she published in the New York Times’ Modern Love column about being a Mormon virgin, Nicole Hardy has always been funny and surprising and sharp. Tonight, she finally hits the big time with the publication of her new memoir, Confessions of a Latter-day Virgin, and she’s celebrating in style with music, food, booze, and a photo booth (and maybe a reading, too, if you’re lucky).
