Book bash blooms

Walters, Jennings, Sawyer among attendees

NEW YORK — It may have been a rainy and dreary New York night, but inside the Lotus Club potted spring flowers were blooming April 12 as news celebs feted Cokie Roberts‘ new book, “Founding Mothers: The Women Who Raised Our Nation.”

ABC News prexy David Westin hosted the party for Roberts, long based in Washington, D.C. The Alphabet’s news division was more than well represented, with Peter Jennings, Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos attending. HarperCollins’ Jane Friedman, Lesley Stahl and Tina Brown also stopped by the Upper East Side private club.

Several revelers also booked it over to Arianna Huffington‘s lit bash the same evening in Gotham.
