Join the Ladies of High Tea as they read

Save the Date by Mary Kay Andrews


The Ladies of High Tea will meet the Fourth Thursday of the Month at 3PM — Join us on Thursday, June 28th, 2018. Save the Date by Mary Kay Andrews.


A Savannah florist is about to score the wedding of a lifetime one that will solidify her career as the go-to-girl for society nuptials. Ironically, Cara Kryzik doesn’t believe in love, even though she creates beautiful flower arrangements to celebrate it. But when the bride spirals into a crisis and the wedding is in jeopardy, Cara must come to the rescue and figure out what she believes in. Maybe love really does exist outside of fairy tales after all.



In July, the Ladies will read Lethal Legacy by Linda Fairstein.

When Assistant District Attorney Alex Cooper is summoned to Tina Barr’s apartment on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, she finds a neighbor convinced that the young woman was assaulted. But the terrified victim, a conservator of rare books and maps, refuses to cooperate with investigators. Then another woman is found murdered in that same apartment with an extremely valuable book, believed to have been stolen. As Alex pursues the murderer, she is drawn into the strange and privileged world of the Hunt family, major benefactors of the New York Public Library and passionate rare book collectors who may be willing to kill for their treasures.


Due to availability please note that schedules and selections are subject to change without notice.
