Coming up on Thursday, June 13th, 2019 at 6:30pm, Melanie Benjamin — the New York Times bestselling author of The Aviator's Wife, The Swans of Fifth Avenue, and The Girls in the Picture, will be discussing the release of her newest book, Mistress of the Ritz, a captivating novel based on the story of an extraordinary real-life American woman who secretly worked for the French Resistance during World War II--while playing hostess to the invading Germans at the iconic Hôtel Ritz in Paris. Joining Ms. Benjamin will be Edward Kelsey Moore — author of the New York Times and international bestselling novel The Supremes At Earl's All-You-Can-Eat, and a second novel in the series, The Supremes Sing The Happy Heartache Blues. Together, these two authors have just launched a new, ongoing podcast about our identities called, Who The Hell Are We?.
The book event with Ms. Benjamin and Mr. Moore is hosted by The Book Stall in suburban Winnetka, IL, where a Ritz-y toast will be served up as guests listen in on these two acclaimed Chicago-area writers talking about the art and craft of their work. The presentation will be followed by a book signing with the authors.
This event is free and open to the public. The Book Stall asks that you purchase your books from their store if you will enter the book-signing queue.
