The Darien Community Association (DCA) will hold a book signing of an illustrated collection of love and relationship advice on Wednesday, Jan. 15, at 7:30 p.m., with a wine reception at 6:45.

The book, from The New Yorker writer Patricia Marx, with illustrations from The New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast, You Can Only Yell at Me for One Thing at a Time: Rules for Couples, follows their popular collaboration Why Don’t You Write My Eulogy Now So I Can Correct It: A Mother’s Suggestions.

Marx is a former writer for “Saturday Night Live” and was the first woman elected to the Harvard Lampoon. Chast attended Rhode Island School of Design and has loved to draw cartoons since she was a child growing up in Brooklyn. This event is held in conjunction with Barrett Bookstore (event sponsor) and US Chemicals, a woman-owned business (wine reception sponsor).

This event is $30 for DCA members or $40 public. Ticket price includes a copy of the hardcover book and the wine reception. Prepayment is required by Monday, Jan. 13. To register online, go to dariendca.org, or contact the DCA at 203-655-9050, ext. 10. The DCA is located at 274 Middlesex Road.
