Elizabeth Kostova speaks at Lake Lure benefit
New York Times best-selling author Elizabeth Kostova speaks at Rumbling Bald Resort in Lake Lure, 12 noon, Sept. 15, kicking off the library’s Books & Bites season.
Kostova will discuss her novel, The Swan Thieves, at the resort’s Lakeview Restaurant. The luncheon is a benefit for the Friends of Mountain Branch Library in Lake Lure.
In The Swan Thieves, as in The Historian, Kostova’s first novel, the main characters are drawn first into mysteries and then obsessions. In The Historian, it was Dracula. In The Swan Thieves, it’s art.
Kostova’s books will be available for purchase and signatures. The cost of this event is $25. Reservations are available by phone (625-0456); or in person at The Mountains Branch Library, Bills Creek Road, Lake Lure.
