Join us for a Literary Lunch in November!
Internationally bestselling writer Eva Stachniak, author of Empress of the Night, The Winter Palace, Garden of Venus, Necessary Lies and other works, will be the featured guest at the CEF Library System’s Literary Luncheon Meeting on Friday, November 7, 2014 at Lake Forest Senior Living Community, Plattsburgh.
Invitations will be going out to people on our mailing lists, but please email us if you would like more information or to receive an invitation.
It is such a privilege to host an author of this stature in our area and we are asking library lovers throughout the area to help fund the costs associated with this effort through an Adirondack Gives Campaign.
Told in the voice of Catherine the Great, Eva Stachniak’s most recent novel, Empress of the Night intimately captures one of history’s most remarkable leaders as she reflects on her ascension to the throne, her rule over the world’s greatest power, and the sacrifices that made her the most feared and commanding woman of her time.
