Reading Between The Wines: Elizabeth Berg says
Bookmark It is excited to share the news that author Elizabeth Berg will headline the 9th annual Reading between the Wines Adult Literacy League of Central Florida fundraiser presented by Bank of America at Orlando Science Center April 20 from 6-9 p.m. Berg, author of The Dream Lover, chosen by USA Today reviewers as one of 10 books that made a "lasting impression" in 2015, will speak and sign books at the event celebrated for its generous food and wine offerings by some of Orlando's top restaurants.

During the festive three-hour event, guests can mix and mingle while enjoying savory and sweet tapas-sized noshes by Swine & Sons, 4Rivers Smokehouse and The COOP, Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant of Disney Springs, Urban Tide at Hyatt Regency Orlando and Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen at Walt Disney World Resort.

Darden Restaurants and its suppliers and PRP Wine International will provide wines to pair with the food. As guests mix and mingle, they can bid on silent auction items that include everything from airline and theme park tickets to resort spa and golf packages.

All event proceeds will support Adult Literacy League (ALL) programs and services designed to build a literate community. ALL provides one-to-one tutoring and classes to more than 1,000 adults on a weekly basis, plus books and learning materials to 600 preschoolers in low-income families each year.

Tickets for the event go on sale Feb. 15. Individual tickets are $85; a $600 Connoisseur's Table includes four event tickets, a reserved cocktail table, two gift bottles of wine and recognition as a sponsor in the event program.

With more than 4 million copies of her books in print, Berg has charmed readers for decades with stories like T he Pull of the Moon and Oprah Book Club selection Open House.
Her latest, The Dream Lover, is a historical novel about gender-bending 19th century French novelist George Sand. Told in Sand's voice, her story is melancholy, self-aware and heartbreaking. Berg draws an intimate portrait of a highly sensual, brilliant, complicated woman whose ideas are as relevant today as they were more than 150 years ago. It's a novel not only about Sand, but also about Paris, fashion, desire, love, art, the power of family to define us, and the strength it takes to break free.

Berg will sign books following her author question-and-answer period. Bookmark It will have books available at the event and before at the store. See you there !
