The weather outside may be frightful, but I promise that the panel will be delightful!
Tomorrow, Beatriz Williams and I are teaming up with wonderful Andrea Penrose to discuss writing, history, mysteries, and more. You can find us at the gorgeous Pequot Library in Southport, CT tomorrow (Thursday) night at 7:00. The event is free and open to the public.
These days, Andrea writes Regency mysteries (calling all fans of C.S. Harris and Anna Huber!), but in a past incarnation, she and I taught a class at Yale together on the Regency romance novel, and I can tell you, what Andrea doesn’t know about the early nineteenth century just isn’t worth knowing. Plus, she’s just plain fun.
Here’s the official event description:
Join us for a discussion led by Chief Librarian Christine Catallo with three bestselling historical fiction authors as they discuss their latest 2019 releases: Andrea Penrose’s Murder at Kensington Palace, the third book in her award-winning Regency-era Wrexford & Sloane mystery series; Lauren Willig’s The Summer Country, a brilliant Victorian saga set in colonial Barbados; and Beatriz Williams’ The Golden Hour, an epic of espionage and courage set inside the court of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor in World War II-era Nassau.
Enjoy a 30- to 40-minute author talk, Q & A and book sales and signing.
Hope to see you there!
