Six Authors of "Ribbons of Scarlet"

During the French Revolution, women took to the streets and engaged in politics like never before. The story of how they fought for the freedoms we now enjoy and still aspire to has never been more timely, or more inspiring.


Join us on Saturday, October 5 at 6 pm, for a very special event to hear and meet all six authors of Ribbons of Scarlet: A Novel of the French Revolution's Women (to be published Oct. 1). The novel is penned by Stephanie Dray, Laura Kamoie, E. Knight, Sophie Perinot, Kate Quinn, and Heather Webb. Copperfish Books is proud to be among the few bookstores to be able to have them all at one event.

In addition to hearing each author speak, the evening will include French wines and cheeses specially selected and served by our friends at Punta Gorda Chocolate & Wine. You’ll also be able to have your book signed by all of the authors.

Tickets are limited for this one-of-a-kind, multi-author occasion. The price to attend is $28, which includes one paperback copy of Ribbons of Scarlet, French wine and cheeses, and the opportunity to hear, meet, and chat with six authors.

About the Book

Ribbons of Scarlet tells the story of the tumultuous French Revolution from the female perspective, giving voice to heroines – princesses and peasants, harlots and wives, fanatics and philosophers – using their own documented words. Six authors each portray one historical figure, together representing the whole of the political spectrum, in an interwoven narrative that reads as one cohesive novel. Who will fall under the guillotine’s blade, and who will carry the Revolution’s shining ideals out of bloodshed into a new France?
