Cocktail Reception featuring Alice Starmore
Friday 7:00–9:00 PM
 
Meet Alice Starmore, bestselling author  of Tudor Roses, for the exclusive launch of her wondrous new book, Glamourie.

Photographer Jade Starmore (Alice’s daughter) provides luscious, full-color images of the elaborate costumes—as well as her retellings of the traditional tales—including nine panoramic gatefolds, all staged in remote and romantic Hebridean locations.
 
Dover Publications, the publisher of Glamourie, is honored to be hosting the cocktail reception, which will have on display several pieces featured in the book. Alice will keynote at the Cocktail Reception and will be available to sign copies of Glamourie for attendees.
