Each month I try to bring you the best new books in Must Reads, so normally I'd be too proud to admit I missed something. But that's not the case for The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance!
To understand this book is worth a look all you need to know is that the New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance is an actual event. And the more I learn about author Elna Baker, the more I'm convinced that it's a righteous read. A practicing Mormon living and dating in New York City, it sounds like Elna's stories could write themselves.
After watching this clip of her recounting her first dance — when her botched fortune cookie costume looked more like a vagina — I'm pretty sure we've stumbled upon a Mormon with the dating tales of Carrie Bradshaw and the storytelling skills of David Sedaris. Watch it after the jump.
