NBC’s Kathie Lee Gifford is coming to Lake Worth next month.
The three-time Emmy-winning cohost of the fourth hour of “Today,” will be at Book Cellar on Lake Avenue on March 9 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. as part of a “Happy Hour Mingle” to promote her latest book, ‘The Rock, the Road and the Rabbi.”
Gifford wrote the book, scheduled to come out March 6, with Rabbi Jason Sobel.
Tickets cost $40 and can be bought by clicking on www.bookcellarlw.com.
Gifford has been traveling to Israel since she was 17. Her book is an examination of a decades-long desire to know more about the typical “Sunday School” teaching in churches today.
Book Cellar’s owner Tami Ayraud said Gifford’s publicist called the store on a recommendation from a friend who has been to Book Cellar. “Her publicist did not give the name of the friend, but she gave a raving recommendation, so they researched our store and reached out to us about doing an event,” Ayraud said. “We were of course more than happy to get the event set up.”
A well-documented wine lover, Gifford’s fans will receive a glass of her Gifft Wines along with an autographed copy of her book.

“I set out to create wines I would want to drink and serve to friends in my home,” Gifford said in a statement.
Heidi Scheid of Scheid Family Wines said Gifford’s aim was clear. “To offer ultra-premium wines at an affordable price,” she said. “The style she was after was perfectly suited to the Monterey growing region and our own viewpoint.”
Gifford has authored three New York Times bestselling books, including “Just When I Thought I Dropped My Last Egg” and “I Can’t Believe I Said That.”
