Lunch & Lit with Mary Alice Monroe

Join us for Lunch & Lit on Wednesday, June 19, featuring New York Times bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe and her most recent book The Summer Guests

When a hurricane threatens the coasts of Florida and South Carolina, an eclectic group of evacuees flees, bringing with them only the few treasured possessions they can fit in their vehicles. Riding out the storm together, their story is a heartwarming and evocative novel about the bonds and new beginnings that are born from natural disasters and how, even during the worst of circumstances—or perhaps because of them—we discover what is most important in life. 

Mary Alice will be on hand to talk, answer questions, and sign books, and we'll be dining at the hands of the fabulous Chef Shaun Garcia at Soby’s (which is hardly ever open for lunch). If you feel compelled to head straight to the beach afterwards, we certainly won't stand in your way.

Tickets are $45 and include a three course lunch and a copy of The Summer Guests.

Strawberry Salad

Local Greens, Radish, Herb Dressing
