23 Mar The Wedding Veil
New York Times Bestselling Author’s National Book Tour Features Stop at Carteret Community College
Morehead City, N.C. (March 23, 2022) – Carteret Community College will host the New York Times, USA Today and Publisher’s Weekly best-selling author of nine novels Kristy Woodson Harvey as she promotes the release of her new book. The event will take place on April 7 at 5:30 p.m. at the Elizabeth and Doug Townsend Event Hall in the Hospitality & Culinary Arts Center on the College’s campus.
Harvey’s new book titled The Wedding Veil brings to vivid life a group of remarkable women forging their own paths — and explores the mystery of a national heirloom lost to time. During the evening, Harvey will discuss what inspired her to write the book and also read a selection. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask Harvey questions and to have books signed.
“The College is thrilled that Kristy Woodson Harvey’s book tour is part of the Foundation’s Sound Discoveries Film and Lecture Series this year,” stated Dr. Tracy Mancini, Carteret Community College President. “Ms. Harvey’s delightful portrayal of Beaufort in her Peachtree Bluff series has won the hearts and devotion of many local and non-local readers. We are thankful to be able to offer a venue for her to feature her new work and for the community to be able to engage with her.”
In addition, attendees will offer a “Toast to the Wedding Veil” with pink champagne and enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres, dessert, wine, and beverages. The culinary selections will be created by the Carteret Community College Culinary Arts and Baking & Pastry Programs.
