Virginia Woolf made the connection between language and wine, so we wanted to take a page from her and create an entire Adventures by the Book series devoted to the pairing of wine and books. Voila! Join us for our next event in the Reading Between the Vines series, which will take place once again at the estate producer Hook & Ladder Winery, 2134 Olivet Rd, Santa Rosa, in Sonoma County, California, as part of their exciting new Book & Ladder Club!
With the assistance of Melier, we invite you to indulge in a bubbles tasting and book pairing experience, presented under California’s brilliant trademark sunshine. While you sample a delectable glass of Hook & Ladder Winery bubbles and light pastries, meet SoCal-based, New York Times bestselling author Christopher Reich and learn about his latest spy thriller, Matterhorn.
Your Adventure includes a glass of Hook & Ladder bubbles specifically selected to pair with Christopher’s novel, a signed hardcover copy of Matterhorn, fresh pastries, author presentation, Q&A, book signing, and the opportunity to meet the author in a relaxed and intimate setting at the beautiful Hook & Ladder Winery property.
Christopher Reich is the New YorkTimes bestselling author of The Take, Numbered Account, Rules of Deception, Rules of Vengeance, Rules of Betrayal, and many other thrillers. He graduated from Georgetown University and went on to study business at the University of Texas. Chris then lived and worked in Switzerland as an investment banker before moving to Austin to author his first novel, Numbered Account, which went on to sell over 1 million copies. He has since authored 12 more novels, many of which have appeared on the NYT Bestseller list. His novel The Patriots Club won the International Thriller Writers award for Best Novel in 2006. He lives in Southern California, in the beautiful town of Newport Beach. His latest novel, Matterhorn, is an alpine thriller where a sudden family death and an old nemesis bring retired agent Mac Dekker in from the cold.
Free registration via Hook & Ladder is available now. Books and wine will be available for sale and signing at the event. Only books purchased at the event are eligible for signing.
