Blue Bicycle Books Author's Luncheon
Join us Monday, July 6 at noon for a Blue Bicycle Books Author's Luncheon featuring New York Times bestseller Patti Callahan Henry. The talk and lunch will be at Hall's Chophouse, 434 King Street. Tickets are $30 for lunch only, or $58 for lunch and a signed copy of "The Idea of Love" (St. Martins Press, hb., 256 pp., $26).

PATTI CALLAHAN HENRY is a full-time writer, wife, mother and a New York Times bestselling author whose novels include "And Then I Found You," "Between the Tides," and "Driftwood Summer."

About the book: Harper, a screenwriter, has had two flops in succession. He needs a hit and he needs it badly. Empty of any new ideas and crippled with writer's block, he decides that he will "steal" a love story. He can't do that in Hollywood, so he heads to a small South Carolina town for a change of scenery and that good love story he needs. Taking on a fake identity as a historian interested in local folklore, he interviews townsfolk under the guise of getting to know their family stories.

He meets Ella, a beautiful young woman who has lost her true love in a sailing accident. But Ella isn't telling the truth. Her husband left her, she has a job selling shoes, and she lost her best friend in the divorce. In desperate need of a love story herself, Ella tells Harper the story of the life she wishes she had, and in the process, starts acting like the woman she wishes she'd always been. Soon they are both too deep into the lies to get out. Add dysfunctional families, small town chaos, eccentric neighbors and exes on both sides, and the knot of lies looks too tight to undo.

Can two people come together for all the wrong reasons and still make it right?

Tickets are $30 for lunch plus tax and processing fee, or $58 for lunch and a signed copy of Patti Callahan Henry's latest book, and includes a champagne reception at Blue Bicycle Books following the event. Doors open at 11:30 AM and lunch is served promptly at noon. Limited seating  provides an intimate experience with the author.

Halls Chophouse is located at 434 King Street in downtown Charleston. Parking is available at the Visitors Center Garage on Ann Street between King and Meeting Streets, the Camden Exchange Garage between John and Hutson Streets, or at meters on the street.
