New York Times best-selling author Dorothea Benton Frank will visit to discuss By Invitation Only, the latest novel in her popular Lowcountry Tales series set in South Carolina.

Meet Dorothea Benton Frank, the New York Times best-selling author of 19 novels including The Hurricane Sisters, All the Single Ladies, All Summer Long, and Same Beach, Next Year. Her latest, By Invitation Only, is a mesmerizing Lowcountry Tale that roars with spirit, humor, and truth. Filled with a delightful cast of characters from two very different worlds, the sharp and deeply empathetic novel forces readers to reconsider their notions of what it means to be a Have or a Have Not.

Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Mac's Backs - Books on Coventry.
