PUT YOUR HEART ON A PLATE FOR A ROMANCE LUNCH
If you wear your heart on your sleeve, if you're a softie for happy endings, if you love to escape in the pages of a romance novel, and if Valentine's Day, with its lacy trimmings, is your favorite holiday of the year, then a Romance Lunch is clearly in your future. On Friday, February 13 from noon to 1:30 p.m., the Mark Twain House and Museum, in an intimate classroom, will host a welcoming gathering as part of The Write Pros Appetizing Authors Series.
Grab a red feather boa, a pink sequined hat and your heart-filled imagination and come meet a pair of Connecticut authors who are guaranteed to make you hear violins sing. The event will feature a buffet lunch and a delightful and insightful conversation with romance authors Katy Lee who focuses on suspense married to love in novels like "Warning Signs" and "Grave Danger" and Nan Rossiter who graduated with a degree in illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design, wrote and illustrated books for children and now writes novels like "The Gin and Chowder Club" and her newest "Nantucket." Connecticut author Lucinda Secrest McDowell will moderate the talk and the question and answer discussion, one that will feature book signings and door prizes.
Whether you just enjoy the wonder and mystery and new worlds that reading opens for you or you secretly wish you could write a best selling novel of your own (like E. L. James' wildly successful and lucrative "50 Shades of Grey"), this afternoon promises to be special, informative and stimulating. For tickets ($20, plus tax and processing), go online to www.The WritePros.com, call 860-653-7733 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Mark Twain House and Museum is located at 351 Farmington Avenue, Hartford. The snow date is Monday, February 16.
Let Katy Lee, who defines her books as "higher purpose stories in high speed worlds," a writer of fun, exciting, suspense stories with romance and inspiration and Nan Rossiter who weaves her love of Nantucket and Cape Cod, family and animals into her compelling tales, ones that deal with real issues like autism and Alzheimer's, entertain and enlighten you on all the ways they capture and delight readers like yourself.
