Join us Fri., July 11, 12 pm, for an Author’s Luncheon with best-selling writer Mary Alice Monroe as we celebrate her newest novel, The Summer Wind. Lunch will be provided at Blue Bicycle Books, now that we have the space!
The Summer Wind (Gallery Books, pb., 384 pp., $16) is the second in Monroe’s Lowcountry Summer trilogy set on Sullivan’s Island. Exploring the complex relationships of three half-sisters scattered across the country and their grandmother determined to keep their southern roots alive, The Summer Wind finds all four women back on Sullivan’s with storms brewing on the horizon.
Monroe is known for her intimate portrayals of women’s lives and for drawing parallels with nature and human nature. An active environmentalist, she draws on her own experiences in the Lowcountry. The author of 16 books, including The Beach House, Time is a River, and The Butterfly’s Daughter, Mary Alice lives on Isle of Palms.
Tickets are $35 and include lunch, author talk, and a signed copy of The Summer Wind. To purchase tickets, click here, or call the store at 843.277.2666.
