A fusion of eastern and western music is the backdrop to Gerald Arpino’s dynamic ode to youth and all its passions.

Book Signing with author Rosalyn Eves

For fans of Bridgerton, a Regency romance by Rosalyn Eves about three young women, their big dreams, and a London Season gone awry. When Thalia, Kalliope, and Charis set off to Regency London for their first Season, they each have clear goals—few of which include matrimony. Thalia means to make her mark among the intelligentsia and publish her poetry, Charis hopes to earn her place among the scientific elite, and Kalliope aims to take the fashionable ton by storm. But this Season, it doesn't take long for things to fall apart. Kalli finds herself embroiled in scandal and reliant upon an arranged marriage to redeem her reputation, Thalia's dreams of publication are threatened by her attraction to a charming rake, and Charis finds herself an unexpected social hit—and the source of a family scandal that her heart might not survive. Can this roller-coaster Season find its happily ever after? An Improbable Season is a voicy, swoony regency drama about falling in love—with another person, with new opportunities, and with yourself. Join us in welcoming Rosalyn Eves to The Printed Garden to read from, discuss, and sign copies of her new book, An Improbably Season. This event begins at 7:00 p.m., and is free and open to the public.
