In this entertaining anthology, a group of bestselling authors and writers pay tribute to legendary, larger-than-life New York Times bestselling author Dorothea Benton Frank and her literary legacy.
Inspired by the title Dorothea Benton Frank planned for her next book—Reunion Beach—these close friends and colleagues channeled their creativity and admiration into stories and poems that celebrate this remarkable woman and her abiding love for the Lowcountry of her native South Carolina—and Charleston—a place of beauty, history, charm, and Gullah magic.
From Elin Hilderbrand, #1 New York Times bestselling author, a sequel to Summer of ’69.
From Adriana Trigiani, New York Times bestselling author, comes a poignant, humorous interview from the hereafter between Pat Conroy and Dorothea Benton Frank.
From Patti Callahan, bestselling author of Becoming Mrs. Lewis and Surviving Savannah, comes The Bridemaids, a story about a girls trip to the South Carolina beach.
From Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author, Mother and Child Reunion, a heartwarming story set under the warm South Carolina sun.
Reunion Beach also features letters, short stories, poems, and essays from:
- Mary Norris, New York Times bestselling author and staff writer for The New Yorker
- Cassandra King Conroy, bestselling and award-winning author of Tell Me A Story
- Nathalie Dupree, James Beard Award–winning cookbook author
- Marjory Wentworth, former Poet Laureate of South Carolina
- Gervais Hagerty, author of In Polite Company
- Jacqueline Bouvier Lee, Peter Frank, Victoria Peluso, and William Frank
Infused with Dorothea Benton Frank’s witty spirit, Reunion Beach is a literary homage and beautiful keepsake that keeps this dearly missed writer’s flame burning bright.
