HANDWRITTEN WINES’ STORYTELLERS SERIES WITH NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR JOHN LESCROART
Handwritten Wines invites you to join us for the next chapter of our StoryTellers Series with New York Times bestselling author John Lescroart on Saturday, June 21st from 6:00pm to 8:30pm. Lescroart is the author of the acclaimed San Francisco-based Dismas Hardy legal thriller series and we'll be celebrating the release of his latest novel, The Keeper. Handwritten Wines' proprietors Dan and Becky Blue will host the evening’s activities.
Jeff Ayers of the Associated Press said it perfectly, “The reason that Lescroart's novels are so readable is his ability to take compelling characters and baffling mysteries and mix them together like a top-rated chef. Many writers include great plot elements but leave a bad taste in the mouth with a subpar ending. Lescroart satisfies with every bite, and the finale is delicious.”
The evening at Handwritten Wines’s Cottage in St. Helena will feature our sub-appellation district wines, delicious bites by Meadowood Catering, and the opportunity to break bread with Lescroart. Ten percent of the evening’s wine sales support the Napa County Library Literacy Center, which provides free tutor training and writing skills for adults and on-site ESL classes and tutoring at the three Migrant Farm Worker Housing units located in northern Napa Valley.
As part of Charitybuzz.com’s Father’s Day campaign, we also offered an e-auction lot in support of the Literacy Center to win a 3-liter etched bottle of Handwritten Wine’s 2011 Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir signed by Lescroart and having your name used as a character in his next novel. The winning bid was $1,600.00!
