About the Event
Our Greek Luncheon Adventure will whisk you away for an afternoon in a mirage of Grecian bliss with Anita Hughes, an award winning multi-published novelist. Anita's first book was published in 2012, and since then she has published five other magnificent novels. Her latest book, Santorini Sunsets, set on the fabulous Greek island, is a story about family bonds, first loves, and the question of when to let go and when to hang on as tight as you can. Join us for a luncheon with Anita, where this spectacular writer will fill our minds with the vivid images of sunsets and secrets that she has weaved into her tantalizing novel. At the same time the authentic Greek Bistro, Apollonia, will fill our bellies with delicious traditional food, like hummus, chicken souvlaki, baklava, and more. Your Adventure includes a Greek meal, beverage, tax & gratuity, book discussion, Q&A, author signing, and an opportunity to meet Anita Hughes up close & personal in an intimate & authentic setting.
About the Books and Authors
Anita Hughes was born in Sydney, Australia and had a charmed childhood that included petting koala bears, riding the waves on Bondi Beach, and putting an occasional shrimp on the barbie. Her writing career began at the age of eight, when she won a national writing contest in The Australian newspaper, and was named "One of Australia's Next Best Writers." She received a B.A. in English Literature with a minor in Creative Writing from Bard College, and attended UC Berkeley's Masters in Creative Writing program. She now lives in Dana Point, CA with her family, where she interrupts her writing to watch the glorious sunsets. Anita's debut novel Monarch Beach was released in June 2012, and that was just the first in a whirlwind series of publication by a dedicated novelist. Her next books Market Street and Lake Como were released in 2013, French Coast and Rome in Love in 2015, Island In the Sea in April 2016 and Santorini Sunsets in August 2016. Her first holiday book, Christmas in Paris, is coming on October 4th, 2016.
When Santorini Sunsets begins Brigit Palmer is thrilled to be on the Greek Island of Santorini. She's here for her wedding to Hollywood heart-throb Blake Crawford, one of America's most eligible bachelors. Brigit's parents have rented a villa, and soon guests will arrive from all over the world for the intimate ceremony. Brigit is a New York socialite, and she's just given up her position at a Manhattan law firm to run her father's philanthropic foundation. Things are finally falling into place. Love, career, family. Everything is going so well...until she steps into the garden and sees her ex-husband Nathaniel hiding in the rose bushes. Nathaniel, a failed novelist, announces that Blake sold the rights to the wedding to HELLO! Magazine for two million dollars (donated to charity), and he is the reporter assigned to write the story. Everyone expects Brigit to have her happily ever after, her mother who taught her how to lead the perfect lifestyle, her younger sister Daisy who impatiently wishes for her own love story, and of course her fiancée. Things are supposed to work out for them. But when Brigit discovers an unsettling secret about Blake, she questions everything she's ever believed about love, and wonders if she's not better off alone.
