Weque pier

All spring as I was out promoting the Rose Water & Orange Blossoms cookbook, I was waiting for this moment. That’s not to say it hasn’t been a total pleasure to share my book with the world! But as anyone who has had even a glimpse of summer in northern Michigan knows, this place is the cherry on top that makes the sundae special.

I’m excited to be here now, and looking forward to book events over the next month. From Mackinac Island to Petoskey to Traverse City, I hope to see my Michigan friends and readers! Here’s the schedule:

Saturday, July 18 – Mackinac Island
Mackinac Public Library, 4 p.m. talk & signing  WITH TREATS!
*my thanks in advance to The Iroquois Hotel and The Grand Hotel!

Friday, July 24 – Petoskey
Lake Affect, 209 Howard Street
5:00-6:00 p.m. cocktail hour (oh yes!) & book signing

Thursday, July 30 – The Inn at Bay Harbor, just outside of Petoskey
5:30-6:30 p.m. DEMO!, cocktail, tasting & book signing, $15
RESERVATIONS, call Melissa at 231-439-4026
Also SEE THIS for more details! It’s going to be a great evening…

Saturday, August 8 – Traverse City
Horizon Books, 4 p.m. talk & signing

The book events have been absolutely delightful! Here’s a look at a few of them, which have taken place in Chicago, New York City, San Francisco and back in my great home state of Michigan–where last week, Stafford’s Pier in Harbor Springs with Between the Covers Bookshop hosted a grand Lebanese dinner event (sold out! more than 130 people came, ate, and smiled the evening away! Oh, and took home signed books!). I’m so humbly grateful to them and to all who are hosting me and this special book these months, and to all of you who are coming out to say hello! Thank you so very much!
