The start to the Summer Reading Season was a huge success at The Dunes Club in Narragansett, Rhode Island. More than 350 guests gathered to hear from the authors of summer: Jane Green, Elin Hilderbrand, Charles Dubow, Emily Liebert and Beatriz Williams. It was a night we’ll all remember.

The beneficiary of the event is my friend, Benjamin McDermott, here we are with my husband, Burt and Benjamin’s parents, Karyn and Shaun. Funds are being raised to help the family secure a ramp accessible van and thanks to the success of the event we’re much closer to the goal!
The event would not have been been possible without family and friends helping out. I am so thankful for everyone’s help! Here I am with my sisters, Laura and Jennifer and Aunt Eileen!
A special treat to have Emily with us!
One of my favorite parts about doing these events is hearing that guests ran into old friends, people they hadn’t seen in a while- such a cozy feeling!
