Last November,WALTER readers gathered at The Fairview in dowtown Raleigh to hear from author and humorist Celia Rivenbark. The night was made possible by our sponsors, Closets by Design and Reliable Jewelry. Guests mingled with Rivenbark as hors d’oeuvres were passed and cocktails by Diageo were served. The group was then seated for a three-course dinner from Cateringworks, including roasted chicken stuffed with brie and a risotto Parmesan cake. When dinner was in full swing, Rivenbark had the crowd in hysterics with her hilarious anecdotes and Southern tales. She recalled funny holiday memories, and caught us up on material for her weekly opinion column. Dessert was served alongside Bailey’s and coffee before a Q&A with Rivenbark. Following the Q&A, guests waited to meet Rivenbark while Quail Ridge Books sold her titles to be signed. Special thanks to our additional partners Attended Events, Westgate Wine, Workshop Media and Alphagraphics.
