Author Bennett to discuss 'Renovating Woman'

Author Allegra Bennett will discuss her new book, "Renovating Woman, A Guide to Home Repair Maintenance and Real Men," at 3 p.m. Saturday at Bibelot, 1819 Reisterstown Road in Pikesville.

A former Sun reporter turned "handywoman," Bennett promises to "help women realize that men do not have a secret repair gene and that they can do home repairs as well as, or better than men if they learn how."

Bennett, who says she was once a "home-repair ignoramus" claims any woman (or man) can experience the "feeling of accomplishment" that comes with fixing things herself. She will sign copies of her book, which costs $22.

For more information, call Bibelot at 653-6933.
