Photographer Kyle Cassidy profiles several books, including The Duke and The Pirate Queen – he’s the namesake of an evil pirate character in the book. He is not really an evil pirate. But at his post, you can see him dressed as one.
I’m having a launch party for The Duke and The Pirate Queen and if you’re in the area, I’d love for you to attend.
Saturday, December 11, 2010, 3 pm
Big Blue Marble Bookstore, 551 Carpenter Lane, Philadelphia, PA 19119
Food! Drink! Books!
There will be a reading, a book signing, and FOOD, GLORIOUS FOOD, inspired by what the characters eat.
The planned menu includes:
Glace apricots, cherries, and pears
Honeyed mint tea
Fresh coconut drink
Fennel and sesame confits
Sea salt chocolate caramels
Tropical fruit platter
Chicken satay on a bed of orchids
Kimbab (Korean version of sushi)
Chevre and crackers
…and an almond-almond buttercream cake from Imagicakes decorated with an octopus painted in tattoo-art style to represent the sigil of Maxime’s duchy by the sea.
Come! Eat! Celebrate!
