We're getting together with our friends at The Chocolate Moose to organize a book-inspired wine tasting (because The Chocolate Moose also has a stellar wine list!) where the qualities of each wine get paired with books that share the same spirit. Your ticket to the tasting includes your choice of one of the featured books. Bottles of wine will be for sale at great prices too. It’s a great date, or a perfect girls night out.
To properly kick off the summer season of reading, we’re excited host Wendy Wax and her brand new book, Best Beach Ever. Latest in her Ten Beach Road series, this novel continues the story of friends Maddie, Nikki, and Avery, their shifting fortunes and dreams at the Sunshine Hotel, and a new mysterious tenant. (For those of you who like to start at the beginning, we’ll have plenty of copies of the first book, Ten Beach Road, too.)
Also joining us this evening will be Marybeth Mayhew Whalen, author of When We Were Worthy, a novel about a small town in Georgia shaken to its core by a tragic accident. At the center of the whirlwind are four women, each grappling with loss, regret, shame, and lies: Marglyn, a grieving mother; Darcy, whose son had been behind the wheel; Ava, a substitute teacher with a scandalous secret; and Leah, a cheerleader who should have been in the car with her friends, but wasn’t.
Join us for a chance to chat with these writers, learn about their books (and four others!), and raise a lovely glass or two. Tickets are $30 and include the wine tasting, and your choice of one of the evening’s featured books. 6:30PM.
