Blue Bicycle Books Author's Luncheon
Join us for a Blue Bicycle Books Author's Luncheon featuring New York Times bestseller Karen White. The talk, book signing and lunch will be at Hall's Chophouse, 434 King Street. The Sound of Glass (New American Library, hb., 432 pp.).
About The Sound of Glass: Two years after Merritt Heyward loses her husband Cal, she receives unexpected news: Cal's family home in Beaufort, bequeathed by Cal's reclusive grandmother, now belongs to her.
Charting the course of an uncertain life -- and feeling guilt from her husband's tragic death -- Merritt travels from her home in Maine to South Carolina, where the secrets of Cal's past reside among the pluff mud and jasmine of the ancestral Heyward home on the Bluff. This unknown legacy, now Merritt's, will change and define her as she navigates her new life -- a life complicated by the arrival of her too-young stepmother and ten-year-old half-brother.
In this house of strangers, Merritt is forced into unraveling the Heyward family past as she faces her own fears and finds the healing she needs in the salt air of the Lowcountry.
About the author: Karen White is a New York Times bestselling author of what she refers to as 'grit lit' -- Southern women's fiction. Perhaps best known for a bestselling mystery series set in Charleston, Karen hails from a long line of Southerners. She spent most of her growing-up years in London and is a graduate of the American School in London. When not writing, she spends her time reading, scrapbooking, dancing, and avoiding cooking. She lives near Atlanta with her husband and two children, and a spoiled Havanese dog (who appears in several of her books), Quincy.
Each month, Small Business Lunch at Halls features a distinguished speaker from the business, civic or political arenas upstairs at Halls Chophouse with an imaginative three-course meal prepared by Executive Chef Matthew Niessner.
