BEST PLACE TO MEET YOUR FAVORITE AUTHOR

The Esther B. O’Keeffe Speaker Series, The Society of the Four Arts.

When former First Lady Barbara Bush spoke, the crowed overflowed the 700-seat auditorium and into the art gallery across the hall. At $35, tickets aren’t cheap, but the authors who have graced the stage Tuesdays at 3 p.m. in season represent literature’s best and brightest. Over the years, we’ve been entertained and enlightened by David McCullough and Doris Kearns Goodwin, Garrison Keillor, Tom Wolfe and many more. And after they speak, most authors hang around to greet the public and sign their books. The Society of the Four Arts, 2 Four Arts Plaza, Palm Beach 561-655-7226 or www.fourarts.org.
