TOASTING SHRIVER: More Magazine’s Lesley Jane Seymour, Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel, Pamela Clarke Keogh and Jesse Kornbluth raised their Pimm’s Cups to Debra Shriver, chief communications officer at Hearst, on Wednesday afternoon at Michael’s to toast the publication of her first book, “Stealing Magnolias: Tales from a New Orleans Courtyard.” And while the bustling crowd at Michael’s ate their Cobb salads, Shriver’s gang was treated to a Louisiana crawfish salad and hot pralines for dessert. “I wrote this book on the weekends,” Shriver said. Later, a saxophonist from nearby Lincoln Center stopped by the table to play two standards, “Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans?” and “When the Saints Go Marching In.” Shriver will be feted again next week, by Hearst editorial director Ellen Levine and chairman Cathie Black, followed by a book signing at Rizzoli.
