Smart Summer Reads 2017
This is your favorite event of the summer: Smart Summer Reads (SSR) ... It is also called speed dating with the authors! It is fast, fun, and guaranteed to supply you with some great reading this summer.
Here's who's coming to SSR:
Donia Bijan and her new novel, The Last Days of Cafe Leila which takes place in her native Iran, both past and present
Jane Green and her next sure-to-be best-seller, The Sunshine Sisters
Victoria Laurie and her latest Abby Cooper adventure, A Panicked Premonition
Maile Meloy and a fast-paced thriller, Do Not Become Alarmed
Taylor Jenkins Reid and her tale of glamour and intrigue, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
Abbi Waxman and her touching debut, The Garden of Small Beginnings
Gwendolyn Womack and her latest sweeping historical saga with lots of other world charm, The Fortune Teller
Here's how it works:
- Our authors will join us on July 16 at 3:00pm. We will mix and chat from 3:00pm to 3:15pm and then the fun begins!
- There will be seven stations set up around and in my home in Manhattan Beach. One for each author. You will move from station to station in 10 minute intervals giving each author approximately 7 minutes to tell you about their latest book and answer questions.
- It is tons of fun and you will have an opportunity to visit with authors you want to know more about and get your books signed.
- The program will wrap up at 4:45pm so you can go home and read a good book!
This not-for-women-only event promises something for everyone!
