About the Event
Our Sicilian Dinner Adventure will be an unbeatable evening spent at the eminent Godfather Restaurant, with Delia Ephron, renowned author and screenwriter of film-classics like You've Got Mail and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Delia's latest electrifying novel, Siracusa, follows two couples on vacation on the coast of Sicily, where the secrets they have kept from each other are exposed and relationships unraveled. Join us as we dine with Delia over authentic Sicilian dishes created by the renowned kitchen of executive Chef Balistreri, and discuss Siracusa: the secrets within it and the inspiration behind a book full of breathtaking Italian scenery, love, deceit, and a haunting, unforgettable ending. Your Adventure includes a Sicilian meal, drink, tax & gratuity, book discussion, Q&A, author signing, and an opportunity to meet Delia Ephron up close & personal in an intimate & authentic setting.
About the Books and Authors
Delia Ephron is a bestselling author and screenwriter. She has written novels, including The Lion is In and Hanging Up; humor books for all ages including How to Eat Like a Child and Do I Have to Say Hello?; and nonfiction, most recently Sister Mother Husband Dog (etc). Her films include The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, You've Got Mail, Hanging Up (based on her novel), and Michael. Her journalism has appeared in The New York Times, O: The Oprah Magazine, Vogue, and Vanity Fair. Her hit play Love, Loss, and What I Wore (co-written with Nora Ephron) ran for more than two years off-Broadway and has been performed all over the world. She lives in New York City. In Delia's latest tantalizing novel, Siracusa, New Yorkers Michael, a famous writer, and Lizzie, a journalist, travel to Italy with their friends from Maine - Finn, his wife Taylor, and their daughter Snow. "From the beginning," says Taylor, "it was a conspiracy for Lizzie and Finn to be together." Told Rashomon-style in alternating points of view, the characters expose and stumble upon lies and infidelities past and present. Snow, ten years old and precociously drawn into a far more adult drama, becomes the catalyst for catastrophe as the novel explores collusion and betrayal in marriage. With her inimitable psychological astuteness, and uncanny understanding of the human heart, Ephron delivers a powerful meditation on marriage, friendship, and the meaning of travel. Set on the sun-drenched coast of the Ionian Sea, Siracusa unfolds with the pacing of a psychological thriller and delivers an unexpected final act that none can see coming.
