Boxer book bows with bash

Seantor hits H'wood to tubthump 'Time'

Senators Hillary Clinton and Barbara Boxer team Friday Oct.21 when New York’s Clinton introduces California’s Boxer to celebrate publication of the latter’s first novel, “A Time To Run” (Chronicla NBooks) at the W Hotel at 201 Park Ave South, 6-8 p.m. Clinton and Barbara Boxer were in Hollywood last week, Clinton to fundraise for her Senatorial campaign via showbiz functions and Boxer to promote her book at a celeb luncheon Oct.15 at the home of Mary Steenburgen and Ted Danson. More Magazine, which features an article on Boxer in its November issue, hosted the “More To Life” Boxer event. The novel was just set by Boxer’s San Francisco literary agent Fred Hill with Richard Green at CAA in BevHills for representation as either a longform series or theatrical feature. Boxer admits her novel, “A Time To Run,” eight years in the writing (with Mary Rose-Hayes) is either life imitating art or art imitating life– the book involves a (femme) senator’s decision (indecision?) to block (support?) a (femme) Supreme Court nominee. Boxer’s experiences in her three Senatorial terms serve her well for the not-so fictional background of government goings-on described in the novel. Peggy Northrop, Editor-in-chief of More magazine, Steenburgen and Danson intro’d Boxer to the L.A. group which included Shohreh Aghdashloo, Gloria Allred (who is also readying her book for early 2006), Laurie David, Fran Drescher, Barbara Hershey, Lori Pettty and Amber Tamblyn. Danson and Steenburgen had returned from Little Rock, Ark. where, Oct.7 , they celebrated the 10th anniversary of their marriage by repeating their vows in Clinton country… Danson is now readying to launch a new series, “Danson Across America” for Showtime. Steenburgen is currently filming “The Nobel Son,” awaiting release of “Marilyn Hotchkiss’ Ballroom Dancing and Charm School,” and readying to star on the Geffen stage in “Boston Marriage” directed by David Mamet..
