C. W. GORTNER: COCO CHANEL TALK & BOOK SIGNING

7:00 PM AT 21 W MAIN STREET

Internationally bestselling author of seven novels, including The Last Queen, The Confessions of Catherine de Medici, The Queen’s Vow, and the Elizabeth I Spymaster Chronicles, C. W. Gortner’s Renaissance-era novels have drawn comparison to writers like Philippa Gregory, Margaret George, and Alison Weir. His latest novel moves his work out of the Renaissance and into the twentieth century with Mademoiselle Chanel.

One of fashion’s most influential designers, Coco overcame childhood poverty and transformed herself into a creative force. Her sleek, minimalist designs rejected the corset and promoted the lifestyle of a new, modern woman of the 1920s. Gortner takes us behind the success and artistic vision to reveal the woman behind them, the Coco who overcame tragedy and was haunted by the decisions she was forced to make when the Nazis invaded Paris.

Join us in welcoming C. W. Gortner to the store on March 20th! He will give a talk about Coco Chanel and her life, followed by a book signing. Whether you’re a long time fan or a first-time reader, you won’t want to miss this awesome event celebrating an amazing self-made woman and a fantastic novelist.

JAN ELLISON MEET 'N' GREET

2:00 PM AT 21 W MAIN STREET

Jan Ellison's debut novel, A Small Indiscretion, has been described as “an impressive fiction debut...both a psychologicalmystery and a study of the divide between desire and duty" by the San Jose Mercury News. USA Today raves, “Ellison masterfully captures the confusing and powerful moment when a young woman realizes her effect on men. Compellingly sympathetic characters bring the London chapter of Annie’s story to dramatic life. If you are clinging to a stash of letters and ticket stubs from old lovers, Indiscretion may have you rethinking the cost of holding on to the past rather than basking in the virtues of the present.” It's sure to appeal to fans of The Girl on the Train and Everything I Never Told You.

Jan will be appearing at Village House of Books to meet and greet her readers. She'll be signing her book and will be happy to discuss it and answer any questions you may have. Join us in congratulating her on publishing such a haunting first novel!
