Blue Bicycle Books Author's Luncheon with Kim Boykin
Join us Monday, July 6 at noon for a Blue Bicycle Books Author's Luncheon featuring Kim Boykin. The talk and lunch will be held at Hall's Chophouse, 434 King Street, Charleston. Tickets are $30 for lunch only, or $46 for lunch plus a signed copy of Boykin's new novel, A Peach of a Pair.

Kim Boykin was raised in New Allentown, South Carolina, which she lovingly refers to as "Crazy Town." She learned storytelling from her grandfather, a master of pacing and sensory detail, who held court under an old mimosa tree on the family farm telling stories about growing up in rural Georgia.

Boykin started writing as a stay-at-home mom, grabbing snippets of time in the children's car rider line at school, or on the bleachers at swim practice. After her kids left the nest, she sold her first novel at age 53. Her books are well reviewed and, according to RT Book Reviews, feel like they're being told across a kitchen table. She is the author of A Peach of a Pair, Palmetto Moon and The Wisdom of Hair from Berkley/NAL/Penguin; Flirting with Forever, She's the One, Just in Time for Christmas, Steal Me, Cowboy and Sweet Home Carolina from Tule. While her heart is always in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, she lives in Charlotte and has a heart for hairstylist, librarians, and book junkies like herself.

It's March,1953. Nettie Gilbert has cherished her time studying to be a music teacher at Columbia College in South Carolina, though as graduation approaches, she can't wait to return to her family and childhood sweetheart Brooks in Alabama. But, just days before her senior recital, she gets a letter from her mother telling her that Brooks is getting married... to her own sister.

Devastated, Nettie drops out of school and takes a job as live-in help for two old-maid sisters, Emily and Lurleen Eldridge. Emily is fiercely protective of the ailing Lurleen, and their sisterhood has weathered many storms. As Nettie learns more about the sisters' lives on a long trip to see a faith healer, she'll discover that love and forgiveness will one day lead her home.

Huffington Post calls A Peach of a Pair an end-of-summer hit. You'll call it a great read.

Tickets are $30 for lunch plus tax and processing fee, $46 for lunch and a signed copy the 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.
