About the Event
Adventures by the Book™ is delighted to announce an evening of decadence and southern charm with our Design Chic Adventure with author and popular blogger, Kristy Woodson Harvey.
Join us in the beautiful home of Ceci Watts, a local Palos Verdes real estate agent & designer, where Kristy Woodson Harvey will join us all the way from her home in North Carolina for an exclusive evening of literature and design. In a beautiful outdoor setting on a warm California summer night, over cocktails and delicious appetizers, we will have the opportunity to discuss Kristy's new book, Slightly South of Simple and discover the secret from the characters' past that has the potential to tear them apart and reshape their very definition of what it means to be a family.
In addition to her career as an author, Kristy also runs a stunning and popular blog, Design Chic, with her mother Beth Woodson. At this exclusive reception, Kristy will also be offering her expert design tips about coastal decor, decorating outdoor spaces, and more. The story behind her path as writer is both humorous and inspiring on many levels and she cannot wait to share it with our lovely Adventurers.
Your Adventure includes heavy appetizers, a cocktail, a copy of Slightly South of Simple, author talk, book signing, and the chance to meet Kristy up-close and personal in an authentic and intimate setting*.
*Please note that this event will be held outdoors; it is recommended that guests wear flats and bring a light sweater.
About the Author and Book
Slightly South of Simple: The last thing Caroline Murphy expects to hear when she’s seven months pregnant is that her marriage is falling apart. In the wake of this news, she packs up her bags and flies south with her eleven-year-old daughter to her mother’s home in Peachtree Bluff, Georgia. But Caroline isn’t the only Murphy girl who’s returning home: both of her younger sisters, Emerson and Sloane, find themselves right back in their mother’s arms for one reason or another. Slightly South of Simple is a chronicle of sisterhood, motherhood, marriage, and all the ways secrets weave themselves in and out of one’s life, filled with Southern charm and plenty of heart.
