SOLD OUT! - An Evening with Frances Mayes

Bestselling and beloved author Frances Mayes discovers the hidden pleasures of Italy in a sumptuous travel narrative that crisscrosses the country, with inventive new recipes celebrating Italian cuisine.

The Roman Forum, the Leaning Tower, the Piazza San Marco: these are the sights synonymous with Italy. But such landmarks only scratch the surface of this magical country's offerings. In See You in the Piazza, Frances Mayes introduces us to the Italy only the locals know, as she and her husband, Ed, eat and drink their way through thirteen regions--from Friuli to Sicily. Along the way, she seeks out the cultural and historic gems not found in traditional guidebooks.

Frances conjures the enchantment of the backstreets, the hubbub of the markets, the dreamlike wonder of that space between lunch and dinner when a city cracks open to those who would wander or when a mind is drawn into the pages of a delicious book--and discloses to us the secrets that only someone who is on intimate terms with a place could find.

Please join us for a special evening on Thursday, 18 April 2019 with Frances Mayes and See You in the Piazza at Rakestraw Books. We'll start the fun at 6:30 with prosecco and nibbles before the book event begins at 7 PM.

Tickets are $15/person (includes a $10 coupon towards your purchase of See You in the Piazza). Tickets are available by clicking HERE. [SOLD OUT!]
