Previous Event: "Writers at the Residence"

The event, hosted by Lady Westmacott at the Residence at the British Embassy, was a huge success. The panel was led by Bryce Corbett and featured 5 other prominent writers: Stephen Clarke, Alec Lobrano, Michael Sadler, Heather Stimmler-Hall (check out her blog post about SOS Help), and Charles Timoney. After a lighthearted discussion about life in France, the 200+ crowd mingled with the authors during a reception. We raffled off 7 books signed by the authors and also had the opportunity to purchase books to be signed by the authors.

We want to thank Lady Westmacott, all of the authors, WH Smith, and, most importantly, everyone who attended the event, making it a profitable and enjoyable evening.
