The Manatee County Public Library System and the Library Foundation, Inc., are thrilled to announce that best-selling author Dorothea Benton Frank will be the special guest speaker at the Foundation’s 27th annual Author Luncheon on Friday, March 14, 2014. Doors open at 11:00 a.m. for our fabulous raffle and book signing.

The event will be held at the Fête Ballroom at Polo Grill, 10670 Boardwalk Loop, Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Individual tickets are $45; tables of 8, 10, and 12 are also available.

Frank’s first novel, Sullivan’s Island, debuted on the NY Times list at number nine and went back to press over 25 times. It has well over one million copies in print and can be found in ten foreign languages. A dozen subsequent novels were all NY Times bestsellers and may also be found in various foreign languages. She divides her time between the Lowcountry of South Carolina and New Jersey.
