Wild Dunes Author Event with Mary Alice Monroe featuring Friends & Fiction
New York Times bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe welcomes a stellar panel of fellow bestselling writers to the Wild Dunes Author Series: Patti Callahan Henry, Kristin Harmel, and Kristy Woodson Harvey. Together, the “Fab Five” (along with Mary Kay Andrews who cannot attend) are the co-founders of the popular web series and podcast Friends & Fiction. The 18th annual literary fundraiser will be held Sunday, January 16, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. at Wild Dunes Resort in the Sweetgrass Pavilion.
Guests will enjoy listening to an in-depth and convivial Author Conversation moderated by Friends and Fiction Podcast Director Ron Block. Together they are diving deep into their backlist of books to select a personal favorite novel. You may have read it, but you’ve never heard them discuss these books like this before. It’ll be a conversation that everyone will enjoy! In addition to the conversation, the event includes an author meet-and-greet, a book signing hosted by Buxton Books, an exclusive silent auction, a signature cocktail, and delicious hors d'oeuvres and refreshments.
All proceeds from the event and the silent auction will directly support Reading Partners, a local 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing young students who struggle to read with individualized reading support to help them read at grade level. We are grateful to our authors who are generously donating their time to support literacy.
