Mary Alice Monroe, author of A Lowcountry Wedding, was recently at Turnrow Books in Greenwood, MS.
Turnrow Books called the event Girls Night Out with Mary Alice Monroe and while we listened to Mary Alice talk about her books, her work with dolphins and sea turtles; we snacked on crab dip, sugared pecans and sipped A Lowcountry Wedding’s signature cocktail.
While I will admit that I have fallen behind in my reading of Mary’s latest set of books, hearing her speak about working with animals and the love she shows for the Lowcountry area made me want to go back home, shut the door, cut the phone off and just 100% completely submerge myself in this world that she writes about. #summerplansyall
Mary Alice read a bit from the book- the epilogue and MAN, was it hard to not cry. I was pinching my hand and furiously batting my eyelashes to keep the tears at bay (mascara looks good on NO ONE running down their cheeks, am I right?) One lady was not able to hold her tears back and her response (since she had read all the previous books) was so authentic and lets me know that Kleenex will be needed.
While at Turnrow, I met these 2 sisters who were lovely. Chatting about my blog, posing for pictures, and having so much fun. (See the ladies in above picture!)
As always, a lovely bookish event in the heart of downtown Greenwood!
Traveling With T and Mary Alice Monroe (I even wore my new scarf so I would be extra festive 😉
Psst… Did you know that A Lowcountry Wedding is a 2016 Traveling With T’s Beach Reads selection?
