The Whirl: WALTER Book Club with Kristy Woodson Harvey

On April 28, WALTER magazine hosted North Carolina author Kristy Woodson Harvey for a convivial evening of literature and libations at City Club Raleigh. Harvey, the bestselling author of nine novels including Under the Southern Sky and the Peachtree Bluff Series, was celebrating her newest publication, The Wedding Veil, a work of historical-contemporary fiction set at the Biltmore in Asheville.

With a view of the Raleigh skyline at sunset, guests mingled over bubbly, then enjoyed a talk, Q&A and book signing with Harvey. Green Front Furniture set up a lounge inspired by George Vanderbilt’s library at the Biltmore, and Fink’s Jewelers offered a giveaway to much excitement.

A special thank you to presenting sponsor Fink’s Jewelers, supporting sponsors Main & Taylor Shoe Salon and Green Front Furniture, as well as our event partners City Club Raleigh, The Country Bookshop and Alphagraphics for making it a truly special evening — as well as to Harvey, who kept us all entertained with her stories!
