London Events: Get prepared for the festive season in style with Grosvenor House as it launches its winter Literati book club. Lucia van der Post, known as the fairy godmother of style and luxury, will present ‘Celebrate: The Art of the Special Occasion’ which contains a wealth of inspiration and practical advice at the event on December 2.
It will provide a unique opportunity to gain first-hand tips on how to create fun, stylish and memorable occasions to suit all budgets.
The London event will start at 6.30pm with cocktails and canapés inspired by the book. Having spent 26 years as editor (and founding editor) of the ‘How To Spend It’ section of the Financial Times, Lucia van der Post has become one of Europe’s most respected commentators on both style and luxury.
Her debut book ‘Things I Wish My Mother Had Told Me’ was a bestseller in the UK. Taking the traditional book club idea one step further, Grosvenor House has collaborated with leading publishing house Hodder & Stoughton on the Literati book club.
Rather than just bringing people together to discuss a book, Literati hosts a regular stream of authors who lead a discussion of their latest book with hotel and external residents.
Since having launched in January, the impressive line-up has included the first lady of broadcast journalism, Kate Adie, much-admired author and radio presenter Libby Purves, and Natasha Solomons presenting her debut novel in her quest to break the world record for most book events attended by an author in a year.
Tickets for the December event are priced at £20 which includes a copy of the book, welcome drinks and canapés. To book a place or to find all the latest information on upcoming Literati events held at Grosvenor House, visit the newly launched Literati Book Club site
