Book Highlights of the Season : Special Guest Jill O'Connor

Event date: 
Friday, November 3, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Jill O'Connor

Join book enthusiasts at Hicklebee's for a literary lovefest.  Our staff will offer a short preview of our favorite new titles in adult fiction and non-fiction, curated from a wide array of publishers and genres.  Whether you're looking for your next book club title, a fresh beach read, or a thick history tome, we'll help you find your next book.

Then Hicklebee's welcomes back author Jill O'Conner discuss her latest cookbook, CAKE, I LOVE YOU.  Jill O'Connor is a food columnist for the San Diego Union-Tribune and the author of seven cookbooks. Of course, you can't talk about cake without providing a taste, so Jill will have samples of several favorite recipes for the audience to try.

$10.00 reserves your seat at the preview, and includes a coupon for $10 off one of Jill O'Connor's cookbooks. Each guest will also be given an annotated list of the books presented to take home.

Browse Jill's titles.

This is an event for adults.
