If you love dishing about books or simply have a voracious love of reading, you might want to head to Beverly Hills this weekend. Dozens of notable authors, including Joyce Maynard, Dani Shaprio, Tatjana Soli, Gin Phillips and Aimee Bender, will be there discussing their works and various literary genres at the first annual Beverly Hills Literary Escape. The event is being billed as a "one of a kind weekend opportunity to share private book club experiences with some of the most renowned authors of the past year."
There will also be food and wine, a meditation seminar with Sylvia Boorstein, a luncheon featuring Karen Essex and Ethan Canin discussing the new American Dream with a panel of authors.
The event, which kicks off Friday evening, will be held at various locations in the heart of Beverly Hills including Gearys, the Peninsula Hotel, Spago's and the Paley Center for Media.
