Juliet Grey Author Talk

Cover of  "Becoming Marie Antoinette"Acclaimed historical fiction writer Juliet Grey will be hosting an author talk at the West End Library!

Ms. Grey is the author of a trilogy on the life of Marie Antoinette: Becoming Marie Antoinette, Days of Splendor Days of Sorrow, and Confessions of Marie Antoinette. The theme of the event is “Marie Antoinette in Love,” and Ms. Grey will be reading a passage about Marie’s alleged affair with military attaché Axel von Fersen.

Starting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 13, West End will transform into a Parisian café, where you can take in the sights and sounds of France. There will be French patisseries to snack on, a photo booth with fun props to pose with, and a round of the hilarious card game Guillotine -- where you win by beheading the most French nobles.

Viva la reine!
