About the In-Person Event
“A strong woman knows she has strength enough for the journey, but a woman of strength knows it is in the journey where she will become strong.” – Unknown
It’s Women’s History Month, time to celebrate the trailblazing women who have walked difficult paths to pave the road we walk upon today, but it is also time to celebrate YOU, the women who are traversing the new roads we walk upon today.
Come raise a glass to celebrate Fearless Women with New York Times and bestselling authors Elizabeth Cobbs, Georgie Blalock, and Elizabeth St. John, as part of our new series, Reading Between the Vines. Together with San Pasqual Winery in La Mesa, California, we have paired three books by our fearless authors with wines and charcuterie tastings hand selected by the folks at the San Pasqual Winery Tasting Room and Gallery (not the winery itself), 8364 La Mesa Blvd, La Mesa.
Your Adventure includes a relaxing and enjoyable afternoon meeting the authors, an individually wrapped charcuterie box and a 3-flight wine tasting specially paired for each book, book signings, photo-ops, and an intimate and unforgettable afternoon celebrating fearless women at the San Pasqual Winery Tasting Room and Gallery.
And, now that we’ve entered Women’s History Month, we think award-winning historian Elizabeth Cobbs’ article about the history of Feminism is a fascinating read. Check it out HERE!
About the Authors and Books
Georgie Blalock is the bestselling author of The Other Windsor Girl and The Last Debutantes. She is a history and movie buff who loves combining her different passions through historical fiction, and a healthy dose of period piece films. When not writing, she can be found prowling the non-fiction history section of the library or the British film listings on Netflix or in the dojo training for her next karate black belt rank. Georgie also writes historical romance under the name Georgie Lee.
Her latest book is An Indiscreet Princess: A Novel of Queen Victoria’s Defiant Daughter. Before Princess Margaret, before Duchess Meghan, there was Princess Louise: royal rebel.
Award-winning historian Elizabeth Cobbs brings fresh, unexpected perspectives to our understanding of the past and present. Building upon worldwide research and extraordinary life experiences, Elizabeth writes best selling fiction and non-fiction that is both scholarly and witty. Her path-breaking books, articles, and documentary films reveal a world that is as intriguing and surprising as it is real.
Elizabeth earned her Ph.D. in American history at Stanford University. She now holds the Melbern Glasscock Chair at Texas A&M University. Her books have won four literary prizes, two for American history and two for fiction, and she has won four prizes for documentary filmmaking. Elizabeth has been a Fulbright scholar in Ireland and a Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C. She has served on the Historical Advisory Committee of the U.S. State Department and on the jury for the Pulitzer Prize in History.
Her inspiring book, Fearless Women: Feminist Patriots from Abigail Adams to Beyoncé, shows us that the quest for women’s rights is deeply entwined with the founding story of the United States.
Elizabeth St. John’s critically acclaimed historical fiction novels tell the stories of her ancestors: extraordinary women whose intriguing kinship with England’s kings and queens brings an intimately unique perspective to Medieval, Tudor, and Stuart times. Elizabeth’s books include her trilogy, The Lydiard Chronicles, set in 17th Century England during the Civil War, and her newest release, The Godmother’s Secret.
Inspired by England’s most enduring historical mystery, Elizabeth’s book, The Godmother’s Secret,
blends her family history with known facts and centuries of speculation about what happened to the Princes in the Tower.
About San Pasqual Winery
San Pasqual Winery is a small, family owned winery located in La Mesa, California – about 15 miles east of San Diego. Although the namesake dates to the 1970’s when it was located in the San Pasqual Valley, the winery was later “reinvented” as San Diego’s first urban winery, earning it a spot on Sunset Magazine’s list of “Hot 100 West Coast Trends.” The winery is now located in the industrial area of La Mesa, with offsite tasting rooms nearby in the Village of La Mesa and downtown San Diego at Seaport Village. With annual production ranging from three to four thousand cases, most of their wine is sold directly from the winery and tasting room locations, allowing a more personal connection with the people who enjoy their wines.
