Pelican Bookstore’s Upcoming Summer Signings

As this year starts to wind to a close, we’re already planning for next summer! That’s right, we’re working with our favorite authors to schedule dates for their book signings with Pelican Bookstore and Silver Coast Winery!

While we don’t have official dates just yet (we’ll keep you posted, I promise!), we thought we’d give you a little heads up for your summer planning.

Mary Alice Monroe, promoting her new book A Lowcountry Wedding, will be here in early May.

A_Lowcountry_Wedding_Mary Alice MonroeNothing could be more enchanting than a summer wedding—or two!—in Charleston’s fabled lowcountry. A centuries-old plantation, an avenue of ancient oaks dripping moss, a storied ballroom, a sand dune at sunset…

Yet when a stranger arrives, a long held family secret could silence the bells ringing for the Muir sisters. Scandals surface, family bonds are questioned, and promises are broken and renewed. In A Lowcountry Wedding, Monroe delves into the heart of marriage, commitment, and family ties. Huffington Post calls the Lowcountry Summer series “the perfect beach read and a whole lot more.”



Karen White will be visiting in Early June with her newest book, Flight Patterns.

Karen White Flight PatternsGeorgia Chambers has spent her life sifting through other people’s pasts while trying to forget her own. But then her work as an expert of fine china—especially of Limoges—requires her to return to the one place she swore she’d never revisit…

It’s been thirteen years since Georgia left her family home on the coast of Florida, and nothing much has changed, except that there are fewer oysters and more tourists. She finds solace seeing her grandfather still toiling away in the apiary where she spent much of her childhood, but encountering her estranged mother and sister leaves her rattled. 

Seeing them after all this time makes Georgia realize that something has been missing—and unless she finds a way to heal these rifts, she will forever be living vicariously through other people’s remnants. To embrace her own life—mistakes and all—she will have to find the courage to confront the ghosts of her past and the secrets she was forced to keep…
