Lifestyle maven Martha Stewart is expected to cause quite a stir Monday at Barnes & Noble as she sends her fans to cooking school with her new book.
Managers at the Americana at Brand bookstore anticipate hundreds of fans will begin lining up outside as early as 5 a.m. Monday to ensure they are one of the 400 people allowed to have a few seconds of face time with the mass media business magnate. The stop is one of only two in the Los Angeles area for Stewart as she promotes her latest book, “Martha Stewart’s Cooking School: Lessons and Recipes for the Home Cook.”
The stop is also considered another notch for the Barnes & Noble at the Americana. In the six months since it set up shop at 210 Americana Way, the bookstore has started to establish itself as the go-to place for A-list book signings and readings, sharing top billing with its sister store at The Grove.
