We're thrilled to welcome award-winning authors Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni (Oleander Girl: A Novel) and Manil Suri (The City of Devi: A Novel) for our series debut on Thursday, May 9, 2013. Guests are invited to a cocktail party at 7:00 pm to enjoy hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer and sparkling water.
The author discussions starts at 7:30 pm when Bethanne Patrick, author of An Uncommon History of Common Things and An Uncommon History of Common Courtesy, interviews Chitra and Manil, followed by a question and answer session with the audience. After the discussion, the authors will sign books while guests enjoy coffee, tea and dessert. Recently released books will be highlighted and selected other works by the featured authors will also be available for purchase.
Hors d’ oeuvres and desserts will be catered by Matt Finarelli, a local chef and author of Beyond the Red Sauce: Classic Italian Cooking Without Tomatoes. (MDGentleReader)
