Karen White Book Signing

Author Karen White will present and autograph her new book Flight Patterns.

The New York Times bestselling author tells the story of a woman coming home to the family she left behind – and to the woman she always wanted to be… Georgia Chambers has spent her life sifting through other people’s pasts while trying to forget her own. But then her work as an expert of fine china – especially of Limoges – requires her to return to the one place she swore she’d never revisit… It’s been thirteen years since Georgia left her family home on the coast of Florida, and nothing much has changed, except that there are fewer oysters and more tourists. She finds solace seeing her grandfather still toiling away in the apiary where she spent much of her childhood, but encountering her estranged mother and sister leaves her rattled. Seeing them after all this time makes Georgia realize that something has been missing – and unless she finds a way to heal these rifts, she will forever be living vicariously through other people’s remnants. To embrace her own life – mistakes and all – she will have to find the courage to confront the ghosts of her past and the secrets she was forced to keep… new book Flight Patterns

Mary Alice Monroe Book Signing

Author Mary Alice Monroe will present and autograph her new book A Lowcountry Wedding.

Following the trilogy of the Lowcountry Summer series, 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.
