Books 'n' Bottles with Meg Waite Clayton

Mingle and sip wines with Northbrook native and bestselling author of six novels Meg Waite Clayton at this casual event celebrating her newest novel!

The Last Train to London, based on a real-life heroine of the Dutch resistance, centers around the Kindertransports carrying children out of the reach of the Nazis during World War II.  This book is already an international bestseller, and Meg is very excited to visit her "childhood bookstore". 

The full program ($35.00) includes the hardcover book personally signed by the author, unique refreshments both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, informal conversation as well as a question and answer session, and a raffle. Bring additional guests, without book purchase, at the reduced admission price ($10.00).

Reservations recommended !
