These are both major milestones for Robbie Samuels, the founder of
Socializing for Justice and the visionary behind this grassroots,
cross-cultural, cross-issue progressive community and network in Boston.
Over the last 11 years, SoJust has grown to over 3,100 members, hosted over
230 events, and facilitated countless connections.

SoJust also was the inspiration that led Robbie to create Art of the
Schmooze, his signature session about inclusive networking - and a key
component to the friendly and welcoming culture everyone experiences at
SoJust events. If you've been meaning to attend this session you have one
more opportunity to do so: Art of the Schmooze will be offered on Tuesday,
September 19 as part of the SoJust ProfDev Series.

will be the final SoJust event.

For nearly a decade Robbie has been speaking about inclusive networking and
he finally wrote a book about it! In late July, his book was released to
great acclaim as a Kindle book, reaching #1 in 3 categories and remaining a
bestseller ever since - receiving 10 endorsements from experts and business
authors, plus over 160 reviews worldwide.

On Tuesday, September 12 "Croissants vs. Bagels" will be available for the
first time as a paperback, which includes a free audiobook.

Please join us to celebrate Robbie Samuels reaching these milestones and
meet all the people who have been supporting his work over the last 15
years he's been in Boston. That's right, you'll have a chance to practice
your schmoozing skills while enjoying a tasty spread of food and cash bar.

Since this is a book launch party, Robbie will, of course, be doing a
reading, where he'll share some of the best networking tips and techniques
in the book. He will also be doing a book signing (books will be available
for sale at the venue). We will also have an opportunity for a few people
to share their 2-minute "Because of SoJust..." story.

Wondering what a book about "Croissants vs. Bagels" has to do with a group
about Socializing for Justice? This Amazon review does a nice job
explaining that.
