Author Luncheon With Nicola Harrison

Nov 9, 2019 10:20 AM

Nicola Harrison, author of the novel “Montauk” released earlier this year, will be the featured guest speaker at the annual author luncheon hosted by the Friends of the John Jermain Memorial Library. The luncheon will take place at The American Hotel in Sag Harbor on Sunday, December 8, from noon to 2:30 p.m.

“Montauk” is Harrison’s debut novel. Set in the summer of 1938, it tells the story of Beatrice Bordeaux who, for three months, is sequestered with high society wives at The Montauk Manor while her remote and distracted husband, Harry, pursues other “interests” in the city. But soon, Bea finds herself drawn to a local man who is nothing like her husband — stoic, plain spoken and enigmatic. His presence forces her to face a haunting tragedy of her past and question her future.

Born in England, Harrison moved to California where she received a BA in Literature at UCLA before moving to New York and earning an MFA in creative writing at Stony Brook University. She is a member of The Writers Room, has had short stories published in The Southampton Review and Glimmer Train and articles in Los Angeles Magazine and Orange Coast Magazine. She was the fashion and style staff writer for Forbes, had a weekly column at Lucky Magazine and is the founder of a personal styling business, Harrison Style.

The author luncheon is $60 for three courses. Reserve a seat by calling Valerie Cuyjet at 631-725-4147. Books will be available at the luncheon for purchase and inscription.
