On Tuesday, September 11th at 6:30PM, Writer’s Block Bookstore in partnership with Quantum Leap Winery, are delighted to host New York Times bestselling authors Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig, and Karen White as they introduce their second novel together: The Glass Ocean. Each ticket purchase costs $6.00 and includes entry and a glass of wine; all subsequent glasses of wine will be bar price. Books must be purchased the evening of at Quantum Leap Winery or at Writer’s Block Bookstore; please bring your receipt to the event.
About the book: From the New York Times bestselling authors of The Forgotten Room comes a captivating historical mystery, infused with romance, that links the lives of three women across a century—two deep in the past, one in the present—to the doomed passenger liner, RMS Lusitania. In the present day, author Sarah Blake is desperate to find a big idea for her next book; in 1915, Southern belle Caroline Telfair Hochstetter’s marriage is in crisis, and Tessa Fairweather is traveling second-class on the Lusitania, returning home to Devon. As the Lusitania steams toward its fate, three women work against time to unravel a plot that will change the course of their own lives . . . and history itself.
About the authors: A graduate of Stanford University with an MBA from Columbia, Beatriz Williams spent several years in New York and London hiding her early attempts at fiction, first on company laptops as a corporate and communications strategy consultant, and then as an at-home producer of small persons. She now lives with her husband and four children near the Connecticut shore, where she divides her time between writing and laundry.

Lauren Willig is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Ashford Affair, That Summer, The Other Daughter, and The English Wife, as well as the RITA Award-winning Pink Carnation series. An alumna of Yale University, she has a graduate degree in history from Harvard and a J.D. from Harvard Law School. She lives in New York City, where she now writes full time.

Karen White is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author and currently writes what she refers to as ‘grit lit’—Southern women’s fiction—and has also expanded her horizons into writing a mystery series set in Charleston, South Carolina. When not writing, she spends her time reading, scrapbooking, playing piano, and avoiding cooking. She currently lives near Atlanta, Georgia with her husband, two children, and two spoiled Havanese dogs.
