Conversation with Marie Bostwick | The Restoration of Celia Fairchild


Join us for a live online conversation with New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Marie Bostwick to discuss her latest release, The Restoration of Celia Fairchild.

Celia Fairchild is the writer behind the immensely popular “Dear Calpurnia” advice column, a brand she has built an identity and a life on. It is, despite her divorcee and single woman status, the reason an adoption agency agrees to move forward with her application after she is shortlisted as a potential placement. In one afternoon, however, this last ditch hope for motherhood hangs in the balance when she loses her column to a media conglomerate and receives news she has inherited her aunt’s estate in Charleston. With nothing left for her in New York, Celia says goodbye to her former life. When she arrives, the grand house she once remembered has fallen into disrepair, but the community of Charleston is more than ready to welcome her home. With a cast of colorful characters and forgotten figures from her distant past, Celia begins to restore the historical house to its stately prime, and with it, dares to imagine a different future for herself, her new found family, and the child she so desperately wants.
