Blue Bicycle Books Charleston Author Series Luncheon with Mary Alice Monroe and "Beach House for Rent"
Perennial Favorite and NY Times Bestseller Mary Alice Monroe Introduces Beach House For Rent

Mary Alice Monroe Join us Tuesday, June 20th at High Cotton for the next Blue Bicycle Books Charleston Author Series. Raffle tickets will benefit Audubon, as will ticket sales. We love shorebirds!

Enjoy a lovely three-course luncheon at one of Charleston's finest restaurants, High Cotton, and meet the bestselling author, Mary Alice Monroe. You'll also hear about one of Mary Alice's passions, Aububon South Carolina, who will bring a gift for each guest.

Two women. One summer. One very special house.
Two women from different generations are bound together by a beloved beach house. Cara Rutledge, 50, rents her quaint beach house on Isle of Palms to Heather Wyatt, 26, for the summer. Heather's anxiety keeps her indoors with her caged canaries until the shorebirds-and a man who rescues them-lure her out to the beach. As the summer progresses and Heather's heart opens to the rhythms of the island, Cara's life reels with sudden tragedy. When their worlds shift like the sand under their feet these two very different women come together to discover their common bonds and unique strengths. So at summer's end they, like the migrating shorebirds that come to the island every summer, too, can take flight.

About the Author
New York Times bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe found her true calling in environmental fiction when she moved to coastal South Carolina. Already a successful author, she was captivated by the beauty and fragility of her new home. Her experiences living in the midst of a habitat that was quickly changing gave her a strong and important focus for her novels.

Mary Alice Monroe writes richly textured books that delve into the complexities of interpersonal relationships and the parallels between the land and life. Monroe's novels are published worldwide.

Guests will be eligible to participate in an exciting drawing, courtesy of Mary Alice and SC Audubon. Gifts for the drawing will be a grab bag from Audubon, plus signed copies of The Beach House, Beach House Memories and Swimming Lessons to complete your Beach House Series.

Books are provided by Blue Bicycle Books, an independent bookstore and staple in the downtown Charleston community selling new, used and rare books in the fashionable Upper King Street District.

High Cotton is located at 199 East Bay Street, where the luncheon and discussion will take place. Parking is available at the Cumberland Street Garage, other municipal lots or at meters on the street. Doors open at 11:30 AM and lunch is served promptly at noon. Limited seating provides an intimate experience with the author and there is a cash bar for your enjoyment.
