About the Event
Join us for a tres magnifique Adventure, with not just one but FOUR wonderful authors who have been inspired by the "City of Light".
Eleanor Brown, New York Times bestselling author of The Weird Sisters and The City of Light, has put together a collection of all-new Paris-themed essays written by some of the biggest names in women’s fiction, including three of our favorite authors here in San Diego. Jennifer Coburn (We'll Always Have Paris), Michelle Gable (A Paris Apartment and I'll See You in Paris), and Susan Vreeland (Lisette's List) are each featured in this spectacular anthology. Though each of these authors have written books connected to Paris their personal stories are wildly different; A Paris All Your Own features Parisian memoirs that range from laugh-out-loud funny to wistfully romantic to thoughtfully somber and reflective
Meet us at Le Parfait Paris for a decadent evening of Parisian delight with these four spectacular authors. Over French treats and wine we will discuss with Michelle, Jennifer, and Susan what each of their inspiration was for the stories featured in the collection, and with Eleanor what she learned about the "City of Light" from collecting these personal memoirs. You don't want to miss this exclusive opportunity to meet four bestselling authors on one fabulous Parisian Dinner Adventure.
Your Adventure includes dinner, a glass of wine, author talk, book signing, and the chance to spend the evening with four of the most delightful authors in an intimate and authentic setting.
