Once a month, we set a long table down the middle of the store, gather our friends and folks we admire, and watch the fabulousness happen. After-hours, up-close and personal, these dinners are unique experiences designed around local restaurants, exceptional authors, and sometimes both at the same time. Each menu will reflect a special pairing.  Pat Conroy loved it; you will, too.

Come on in, kids; dinner’s ready.

Sunday Sit-Down Supper with author Diane Chamberlain

Once a month, we set a long table down the middle of the store, invite an author to town and put on a literary supper like no other. After-hours, up-close and personal, these dinners are unique experiences designed to bring what we’re reading off the page and onto the plate. Seats are limited, and the ticket price includes a four-course dinner, a thoughtful beverage pairing, a copy of the book and an evening’s conversation with the writer in question.

We’re excited to host New York Times bestselling author Diane Chamberlain for her brand-new novel, The Dream Daughter. This genre-spanning, time-bending story is about mothers and daughters, families and loss, faith and science and just how far you’ll go to protect someone you love. It’s racking up some pretty great comparisons to The Time Traveler’s Wife. We’ve invited a local chef (stay tuned for details!) to craft a menu that reflects the fantastical elements of the story, and with cocktails and wine and words from Diane, we’re sure to deliver an evening you won’t forget.

Sunday Sit-Down Supper with author Charles Davis

Headed into the holidays, we’ll be hosting Furman’s own First Gentleman Charles Davis with his In The Kitchen At White Oaks, a look at the university president’s house through the recipes of its inhabitants. This is a cookbook in stories, and sure to inspire stories for the evening as well. Dinner will be provided by Furman’s own executive chef Chris Harris, based on recipes from the book. Join us for a very informative good time with our friends from Furman University.
