Swans of Fifth Avenue Literary Luncheon
May 23, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Get ready for an afternoon of scandalous storytelling! Luncheon Co-Chairs Liecie Hollis and Caroline O’Connor invite you to join our guests of honor, María-Eugenia Cossío-Ameduri, Kye Fox, and Alice Lynch, in support of the San Antonio Public Library Foundation at the McNay Art Museum on Thursday, May 23, 2019 from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm for the Foundation’s 13th Annual Literary Luncheon.
This year we welcome New York Times best-selling author Melanie Benjamin to discuss the women and history that inspired her book The Swans of Fifth Avenue. The novel serves up delicious detail about Truman Capote’s betrayal of the coterie of beautiful, elite, Manhattan women that gave him their trust and friendship with his thinly veiled short story published in Esquire magazine, “La Côte Basque, 1965.” Plan for a lovely lunch, book sales and signing, and lively conversation between Melanie and moderator Cornelia Guest.
The Swans of Fifth Avenue is “exceptional storytelling…teeming with scandal, gossip, and excitement.”
