misc_none.png 1:00 PM  -  3:00 PM Author Mary Alice Monroe Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

2019 Summer Library Celebration

Calling all Book Lovers! Come meet New York Times best-selling author, Mary Alice Monroe as she introduces her latest work, The Summer Guests.

Author of the Beach House series, Ms. Monroe shares a heartwarming and evocative novel about the bonds and new beginnings that are born from natural disasters and how, even during the worst of circumstances—or perhaps because of them—you discover what is most important in life. 

Mary Alice Monroe found her true calling in environmental fiction when she moved to coastal South Carolina. Already a successful author, she was captivated by the beauty and fragility of her new home. Her experiences living in the midst of a habitat that was quickly changing gave her a strong and important focus for her novels.

Her novels have achieved many lists, including the New York Times, USA Today and SIBA. She has received numerous awards, including several Readers’ Choice Awards; the 2014 SC Book Festival Award for Excellence in Writing; the 2015 SW Florida Book Festival Distinguished Author Award; RT Lifetime Achievement Award; and the 2008 South Carolina Center for the Book Award for Writing. Most recently, Monroe was named by the South Carolina Academy of Authors as a 2018 inductee of the Literary Hall of Fame.

Monroe lives with her family on a barrier island outside Charleston, South Carolina. She is an active conservationist and serves on the Board of the South Carolina Aquarium, The Leatherback Trust, and Charleston Literacy Volunteers. She is a frequent speaker at book festivals, conferences, and private events. Monroe is also a frequent contributor to magazines and blogs.

Following the presentation there will be a book signing. Book sales will be provided by Page & Palette. For more information, please call 251-494-2298. For more information on the author go to maryalicemonroe.com/. Mary Alice Monroe will be at Page and Palette at 6 p.m.
