From The Post and Courier:
It is with a heavy heart that today we announce The Book & Author Luncheon scheduled for August 14, 2020, will be postponed due to COVID-19. The safety of our Book & Author friends, guests, authors, volunteers, and staff is our number one priority and the postponement of our event is inescapable.
We have held out hope that we would be able to move forward, but responsibly we cannot.
I would like to thank our incredible scheduled authors, Adriana Trigiani, W. Bruce Cameron, Kristan Higgins and Victoria Benton Frank who have stuck with us as we’ve navigated our decision and share a particular thanks to Adriana Trigiani whose guidance and reassurance has been priceless. On a bright note, all of our authors have agreed to come back!
I must also acknowledge the resilient team at the Charleston Marriott who has done everything imaginable to assist us and stand ready to provide the quality service we’ve become accustomed to when we are ready to return.
We are working on a reschedule date and will provide it to you as soon as we responsibly can. In the interim, we will hold your reservations for the reschedule date or provide a refund should you choose. To request a refund, please email BARefunds@postandcourier.com.
As always, I am available for questions, comments or suggestions.
