Lauren Conrad Book Signing
April 05, 2016
Lauren Conrad is an American television personality, fashion designer and author. Conrad became famous after being cast in Laguna Beach: the Real Orange County and then The Hills. I was a huge fan of Lauren growing up so of course I had to attend her book signing at The Grove in LA. I love how she has stayed true to herself and is the definition of a class act. She has built an empire; with includes multiple books, a lifestyle blog, and two clothing lines (paper crown and the LC Lauren Conrad Collection at Kohl’s).
It was a wristband event, which means I had to go early in the morning and line up around the corner (near Topshop). Once the store opened at 9am they walked us over to Barnes and Noble to buy the book and gave me a wristband. Then I spent the day walking around The Grove and at 2pm we were allowed to line up according to the letter on our wristband. At 3pm Lauren arrived to sign her book.
Barnels and Noble have an entire system that kept the book signing running fast and smooth. They have someone who makes sure your book is open to the right page and they put a sticky note on the book with your name (if you want her to personalize it). They also have a worker at the front you will take your photo for you using your camer or phone.
She was really sweet and I asked her “what business advice she would give someone who is starting out in the business world”? She told me to find an internship because majority of her workers started off as interns at her company. She also told me to have a good attitude and to be really kind to everyone I work with!
