Program Description

Event Details

Dive into the dazzling Mediterranean this summer with Connecticut-based bestseller Camille Aubray, who will be here to delve in to the depths of the 1920s French Riviera with her new novel, The Girl From The Grand Hotel. 

Aubray's rich, atmospheric historical fiction is set against the luxurious backdrop of the Côte d’Azur and the glamorous world of the first (doomed) Cannes Film Festival. Hear form Aubray about her own explorations of the South of France as she researched the true events involving World War II spies who rubbed shoulders with A-list actors and actresses during one of the most turbulent and violent political times in our history. 

Aubray's previous works include Cooking For Picasso and The Godmothers. In this new novel she will transport you back to a past dripping with intrigue, luxury and love.

Praise for the book included: “Camille Aubray’s The Girl from the Grand Hotel begins as a beach read—and what a beach!—then evolves into a glossy-fearsome thriller partly based on true events…Readers who like the pageantry of galas and the upstairs-downstairs tensions of Downton Abbey should swoon at this breathtakingly imagined novel.” —Shelf Awareness.
