Celebrity Author Luncheon

September 28, 2013 @ 11:30 am - 2:30 pm

| $25


The backpacks will have been purchased, the new shoes and first day clothes will have been chosen, and the heat wave will have broken. As summer winds down, mystery buffs and book lovers of all types will be heading to the second Celebrity Author Luncheon sponsored by the East Lyme Child and Family Auxiliary on Saturday, September 28, 2013, at the Community Center in East Lyme from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

As its first speaker, the Auxiliary is delighted to welcome James Benn of Hadlyme, who is the author of the Billy Boyle World War II Mystery Series. He will introduce the audience to his eighth Billy Boyle whodunit entitled A Blind Goddess. It recently received a starred review in Publisher’s Weekly.

Crimespree Magazine has said, “The Billy Boyle books are among a small group that goes right to the top of the reading pile.”

The second celebrity is David Handler, a resident of Old Lyme, who is the critically acclaimed author of several bestselling mystery series. He will introduce his newly published Runaway Man. Luanne Rice says, “A new novel by David Handler means a lost weekend. He is a master storyteller who starts with a character you want to know everything about and leads you into taut, un-put-down-able suspense.” Publishers Weekly has reported, “Handler’s blend of suspenseful plot, skillful telling, and occasional splashes of comic relief add up to a heady cocktail of prime crime.” 

Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. For more information or to make reservations for a party of six or more, call 860-460-2304, email celebrityauthors@comcast.net or purchase tickets online at https://celebrityauthorluncheon.eventbrite.com/
