2023 Wild Dunes Author Series

Featuring authors David Baldacci, Kathy Reichs, and author/actress Deborah Goodrich Royce

Join us at Wild Dunes Resort on January 15, 2023 at 2:00 pm for our annual Author Series! This year for the 19th annual literary fundraiser, we are excited to welcome internationally known, #1 NY Times bestselling mystery and thriller authors David Baldacci and Kathy Reichs. Award-winning author and actress Deborah Goodrich Royce rounds out this stellar panel.

Guests will experience an in-depth and lively author conversation moderated by award-winning and New York Times bestselling novelist Mary Alice Monroe, who is an Isle of Palms resident and the creator of this literary series. Together on stage, in an intimate setting, she’ll dive deep into the authors’ storied careers, their personal lives, and what inspires their blockbuster mysteries.

$65 for General Admission, $85 for VIP

In addition to the hour-long conversation, the literary event includes an author book signing hosted by Buxton Books. A signed hardcover book of your choice is included with your ticket. Additional autographed books will be available for guests to purchase (no outside books will be signed). There will also be an exclusive silent auction, a signature cocktail provided by Firefly Distillery, and hors d'oeuvres showcasing the flavors of Wild Dunes Resort.


Wild Dunes Resort has paired the Author's Event with an exciting weekend package, perfect for fans. This package gives you the opportunity to enjoy the event and also enjoy all that the resort has to offer. Stay with us in one of our hotels and receive a special bag of goodies upon arrival, from the authors, sponsors, and Wild Dunes Resort. Attend the exciting annual event and get your book signed, and enjoy a special invitation to the exclusive Saturday night wine and cheese event with Mary Alice Monroe and special guest authors in attendance.
