Rich Barnett- Fun with Dick and James

Fun with Dick and James

We're hosting a party to celebrate Rich Barnett's latest book, Fun with Dick and James.

You’d think a Delaware blue blood with a talent for shaking cocktails and a penchant for obscure historical biographies would lead a quiet life, but Dick Hunter seems to face one crisis after another. Whether it’s locating the right hors d’oeuvres for a hurricane party, or just trying to take a nap, nothing comes easily, especially when you add in a meddling ex-wife and the flamboyant heir to a fading french fry empire.

Fortunately, Dick’s young boyfriend, James, is more than just eye candy, even though his street-smart knack for solving problems isn’t always by the rules.

Whether Dick is organizing the Daffodil Strut or just hosting a simple game of cocktail croquet, his best-laid plans often go awry, and James must come to the rescue, whisking Dick from the clutches of well-meaning friends, conniving relatives, and a scheming nemesis. With a cast of quirky characters that ranges from clueless to hip, Fun with Dick and James is a whirlwind of entanglements, misadventures, and style.

Food and drink will be provided at this reception-style event, including Dick's signature drink, the French 75. Rich will be reading story excerpts, and Mick Williams, the illustrator, will discuss how he created the cover illustration. Mick will also have framed paintings and prints available for purchase.

The event will take place on Sunday, August 7th, from 4-6 PM.
