WESTPORT, Conn. -- A new book by Westport author Tessa Smith McGovern, "Book Girl's Guide to Cocktails for Book Lovers," can help people add life to their New Year's parties.

Smith McGovern has always had a penchant for books, and a fascination with interesting cocktails fancied by her father. She successfully coupled literature and libations in a pint-sized, handy hardcover that doubles as the perfect party -- and conversation -- starter for book lovers and cocktail enthusiasts alike.

The book is part drink guide and part behind-the-scenes look at best-selling and local authors. Recipients will relish fun facts while sipping on time-honored drinks or crafting a Smith McGovern original.

Smith McGovern is also the co-founder of Fairfield County Writers’ Studio ( www.fcwritersstudio.com ), host of the popular internet talk show, Book Girl TV, a writing instructor at The Writing Institute at Sarah Lawrence College, and author of the digital collection of short stories, London Road: Linked Stories.
