Rebecca Rosenberg will launch her latest historical novel, “Champagne Widows”, at Readers’ Books on Thursday, April 24.
Don’t miss this one. Rosenberg personally researches on location in the country and knows his stuff, not to mention throwing a good party.
This time, the party will begin with a Champagne reception on the Readers’ Garden Patio at 5:30 p.m., Rosenberg’s lively presentation at 6 p.m., his book signing at 6:45 p.m., and an after party at Jayme Powers’ Sigh Champagne Lounge with flavors of Widow. Clicquot.
Brilliant marketer, Rosenberg says, “Celebrate the first woman who made champagne, Veuve Clicquot, who fought pandemics, mental illness, sexist laws against women business owners, 15 years of wars of Napoleon to conquer Europe and Napoleon himself to forge his champagne empire. .”
And that’s just a tip of the ice bucket.
You may remember Rosenberg for her other historical novels, including “The Secret Life of Mrs. London” and “Gold Digger: The Remarkable Baby Doe Tabor.”
According to Rosenberg, “Champagne Widows” has been favorably mentioned in Wine Enthusiast, Ms. Magazine, Women’s World and Publishers Weekly.
She is also a co-founder of Sonoma Lavender with her husband, Gary Rosenberg. Their lavender field and home on Highway 12 both burned down in our 2017 fires and have been completely replanted and rebuilt. 130 E. Napa St., Sonoma. 939-1779.
