Escapism Book Club: "Duke, Actually"
Join us for a Zoom meeting with Author Jenny Holiday
Join APL to celebrate the lighter side of literature.
Take an escape with a romance and get to know Jenny Holiday, author of "Duke, Actually", who will join us for a Zoom discussion of her book.
There's a royal wedding on, and things are about to get interesting. Maximillian von Hansburg, Baron of Laudon and heir to the Duke of Aquilla, is not having a merry Christmas. He's been dumped by a princess, he's unemployed, and his domineering father has sent him to New York to meet a prospective bride he has no interest in. In the city, he meets Dani Martinez, a smart (and gorgeous) professor he's determined to befriend before their best friends marry in the Eldovian wedding of the century. Newly single, no-nonsense New Yorker Dani is done with love, she even has a list entitled "Things I Will Never Again Do for a Man", which is why she hits it off with notorious rake Max. He's the perfect partner for snow angels in Central Park and deep conversations about the futility of love. It's all fun and games until their friendship deepens into attraction and, oops, falling in love was never part of the plan.
New members are always welcome. You don't have to read the book to join, but it is encouraged.
Instructions to join the Zoom meeting will be emailed to all registrants.
