Mary Alice Monroe and Friends

Mary Alice Monroe and Friends


NYT Bestselling Author Mary Alice Monroe launched her “Conversations with Mary Alice Monroe and Friends” for the Lanier Library in Tryon, NC, on Saturday, November 23rd.  The partnership with the library began with the launch of Monroe’s latest book The Summer Guests in June and continued with the “Conversations” series.

Monroe’s first guest was Cassandra King Conroy, popular Southern author and widow of Pat Conroy.  They discussed King’s latest Book, Tell Me a Story, a memoir of her life with Conroy, which came out in October 2019.

The reception following the event was attended by many members, fans and avid readers.  Thank you for your support!
