Photos of the four authors and event name

Join us for a very special event on Monday, October 25 when New York Times bestselling authors Kristy Woodson Harvey, Mary Kay Andrews, and Patti Callahan will be in conversation with New York Times bestselling author Kristin Harmel! They will speak to us and sign copies of their upcoming books at a brunch at F. M. Don’s restaurant in Punta Gorda. There will also be fun activities and prizes, and a portion of ticket sales will be donated to the Friends of the Punta Gorda Library. We will have the entire restaurant, which not only makes it safer during these unusual times, but also adds to the fun! You won’t want to miss this literary extravaganza! 

Kristy, Mary Kay, and Patti have new books coming out: The Santa Suit by Mary Kay releases on September 28, Patti’s Once Upon a Wardrobe on October 19, and Kristy’s Christmas at Peachtree Bluff on October 26 – hot off the press, and you’ll get your copy a day early!

Each $100 ticket ($93.46 + FL sales tax) includes all three soon-to-be-released books; a brunch entrée, dessert, and a non-alcoholic beverage; and a donation to The Friends of the Punta Gorda Library. (A cash bar will be available.) Doors will open at 11:00 am and the event will begin at 11:30 am.
