Butterfly Tea Party to Celebrate The Butterfly's Daughter Book Launch

Fans have been waiting two years to read a new novel from this veteran writer, who lives on the Isle of Palms.  The novel goes on sale the following day.

Guests will enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres and signature cocktails on the intimate, Palmetto-lined Village Plaza.  The special event includes a reading and book signing by Monroe, followed by a monarch butterfly release.  Tickets are available to the public for $35 and include a hardcover copy of the new novel.  Please call (843) 886-2020 or email to RSVP.

About the Novel
Set against the backdrop of the phenomenal southerly migration of the monarch butterfly, The Butterfly’s Daughter is a powerful tale about the transformational journey of four women chasing monarchs, myths and love across the United States to Mexico.  For Luz Avila, it is the journey of a lifetime as she uncovers the truth about her family--- and herself. 

About the Author
Mary Alice Monroe is an award-winning, bestselling author of 13 novels.  She’s a passionate conservationist who uses storytelling to explore a variety of nature issues, such as the disappearing coastal shrimping industry (Last Light over Carolina), the rivers of North Carolina (Time is a River), the endangered sea turtles (The Beach House, Swimming Lessons), and now the vanishing population of the monarch butterfly.
