Book Your Lunch with New York Times Bestselling South Carolina Author Mary Alice Monroe


Book Your Lunch with New York Times bestselling South Carolina author Mary Alice Monroe on Thursday, May 5th, at 11:30pm at the Poinsett Club (located at 807 E. Washington St. in downtown Greenville). Enjoy a meal of chicken piccata and signature cocktails created by the author, hear Ms. Monroe talk about her new book, A Lowcountry Wedding (Gallery, paperback, $16.00, on sale 5/3/16), and get your book signed by the author.

Tickets are $40 each. Each ticket admits one and includes lunch and a copy of A Lowcountry Wedding. Lunch will consist of chicken piccata, with chef's choice of vegetables and starch. Vegetarian meals are available if requested in advance. Signature cocktails will be provided courtesy of Firefly Distillery. We will also have the author's other books available for sale prior to and at the event. Tickets and books may be purchased online, at the store, or by calling Fiction Addiction at 864-675-0540.

Wedding season has arrived in New York Times bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe's next novel in the "distinct, complex, and endearing" (Charleston Magazine) Lowcountry Summer series, set against the romantic, charming Charleston Lowcountry.

Nothing could be more enchanting than a summer wedding - or two! - in Charleston's fabled Lowcountry. A centuries-old plantation, an avenue of ancient oaks dripping moss, a storied ballroom, a sand dune at sunset...

Yet when a stranger arrives, a long held family secret could silence the bells ringing for the Muir sisters. Scandals surface, family bonds are questioned, and promises are broken and renewed. In A Lowcountry Wedding Monroe delves into the heart of marriage, commitment, and family ties. Huffington Post calls the Lowcountry Summer series "the perfect beach read and a whole lot more." Store volunteer Jackie says the series is "certain to be a summer favorite."
