WOODSTOCK, Ga. -- FoxTale Book Shoppe is kicking off their Fox Lunch & Laugh series with New York Times bestselling author, Dorothea Benton Frank, on Tuesday, June 17 at Vingenzo's Pasta & Pizzeria, just a few doors down from FoxTale.

"Dottie Frank loves her visits to Woodstock, and so do we!" FoxTale co-owner Ellen Ward said. "Once again, FoxTale Book Shoppe welcomes Dottie with the release of her newest book ... this reservations-only luncheon is always a great and fun time."

Tickets are $60 per person and can be reserved at www.foxtalebookshoppe.com/events or by calling or stopping by FoxTale. Each luncheon ticket includes a signed first edition of Frank's The Hurricane Sisters, lunch with drink, dessert and even the tip is included. Dine on fresh shrimp over mixed field green salad with Roma tomatoes dressed in balsamic vinaigrette, house made egg white fettuccine pasta with wood-fired vegetables in Roma tomato sauce, and house made bread.

"Our Dorothea Benton Frank luncheons are all the rage!" Ward said. "There will be giveaways and valuable coupons from local merchants. Bring a girlfriend, and come out for a memorable afternoon. If you were at last summer’s Dorothea Benton Frank luncheon, call us at 770-516-9989 about a special discount on this event!"

The second luncheon will take place on Wednesday, June 25 at noon and features perennial favorite author Patti Callahan Henry and TV personality and cookbook author Carolyn O'Neil. Patti celebrates her new novel, The Stories We Tell, at this luncheon that will feature foods from Carolyn's Southern Living Slim Down South Cookbook, prepared by Tea Leaves & Thyme. When these two popular dynamos get together, there is no telling what antics will ensue.The luncheon is only $25 and comes with $10 in store coupons.
