  • About Book Your Lunch

    Book Your Lunch is a new way to bring authors and readers together -- right here in Greenville. This luncheon series provides the ultimate food for thought with a wide range of authors -- from mystery writers, to award-winning regional novelists to nonfiction and cookbook authors.

    The luncheon tickets must be purchased in advance. The featured author will read from their work (or give a 20-minute talk), followed by a Q&A session, a delicious lunch, and then an onsite book-signing session with the author.

    Books may be purchased from Fiction Addiction in advance or during the event. Space is limited, so purchase your tickets today!
