Update on our Cocktails & Conversations with HarperCollins
Wednesday June 24th, 6pm – 7:30pm EST
Our friends at HarperCollins are bringing five William Morrow authors with books launching late summer and fall to SIBA booksellers in a super fun virtual cocktail party: Christina Baker Kline – The Exiles, Emily Gray Tedrowe – The Talented Miss Farwell, Natalie Walschots – Hench, Hazel Gaynor – When We Were Young and Brave, and Alyssa Cole – When No One is Watching. Take off your shoes, mix up your favorite cocktail or mocktail, and enjoy an hour of fun and inspiration for you and your bookseller crew. These special authors, specially selected for SIBA booksellers, will offer us a glimpse into their private spaces, and a sneak preview of their work. Don't miss it!
Bonus: we’re raffling off a big prize pack of ARCs and swag for top Fall 2020 titles from HarperCollins/Morrow from among bookseller attendees.
Now, onto the cocktails part of the event. Each author has picked out their favorite cocktail to go along with their book. Their choices are listed below and link to recipes. Craft your favorite cocktail and sip on it as the authors tell you about their books. My choice? Easy, “The Hench”!
The Exiles cocktail: The Exile (Dark ‘N’ Stormy)
When We Were Young & Brave cocktail: The Girl Guide (Shirley Temple)
Hench cocktail: The Hench (Old Fashioned)
The Talented Miss Farwell cocktail: The Miss Farwell (dirty martini)
When No One is Watching cocktail: The Watcher (Paloma)
