Over the weekend, I went to a fantastic author luncheon. Few things will convince me to put on real pants on a Saturday so when you see me wearing them, you know the event must be worth it! To me, a day spent with book lovers is a day well spent!
The luncheon was at the beautiful ballroom of the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club. I have the fondest memories of reading Harry Potter as a kid, curled up in a big armchair at the Yacht Club. In my opinion, I can’t think of a dreamier place to become absorbed in the world of books. Wide, tall windows, glittering chandeliers, fountains and paintings. It’s utterly dreamy!
We sat at table, basking in the early afternoon sunlight. Waiters ensuring your coffee never got too low, chatting away until the authors took the stage.
We listened to Cynthia Tennent, Amor Towles and Adriana Trigiani. All write different types of books and had very different personalities. As a group, they left us laughing, thinking and spellbound.
Have you ever been to an author event before? More importantly have you read anything by the authors I saw? I’m so excited to get a read A Gentleman in Moscow!
