Book signing with model Ashley Graham to take place in Bay Ridge

Independent Bay Ridge bookstore, The Bookmark Shoppe (8415 Third Avenue), is hosting an event with model Ashley Graham, who will be signing copies of her new book A New Model at a nearby neighborhood restaurant.

The signing will take place at Cebu Bar and Bistro (8801 Third Avenue) on Wednesday, May 17 at 7 p.m.

Graham has been a professional model since she was 13 years old, when she was discovered in a shopping mall in her home state of Nebraska. She has since graced the covers of top magazines, such as Cosmopolitan and Elle. Graham was also the first plus-size model to ever appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated‘s fan-favorite Swimsuit Issue. Currently, Graham serves as a judge on VH1’s reboot of the popular reality-competition series “America’s Next Top Model.”

Her book, A New Model is a collection of essays and photos in which Graham shares her perspective on ideas of body image and the roller-coaster ride of having a career in fashion, as well as support for women to come to terms with accepting who they are.

Tickets are $28 and include one copy of the book. They can be purchased here.
