Bask in the company of New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Kristina McMorris, for her new book, “Sold on a Monday”, while enjoying an exquisite three-course afternoon tea with champagne in the Le Fontainebleau Room at The Westgate Hotel on Saturday, October 20 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. “Sold on a Monday” captures the desperation sweeping through the country in the year of 1931.
For struggling reporter Ellis Reed, the gut-wrenching scene of peddling young siblings on a farmhouse porch evokes memories of his family’s dark past. He snaps a photograph of the children, not meant for publication. But when the image leads to his big break, the consequences are devastating in ways he never imagined. Inspired by an actual newspaper photo that stunned readers across the nation, this touching novel explores the tale within the frame and behind the lens – a journey of ambition, love, and the far-reaching effects of our actions.
