Join us to celebrate Macenzi Lee's hilarious and swashbuckling 18th century romantic adventure, The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue about a young bisexual British lord who embarks on an unforgettable Grand Tour of Europe. This is a witty, romantic, and exceedingly smart look at discovering one’s place in the world and explores the undeniably fine lines between friendship and love
“Don’t read this book unless you like adventure, hijinks, and forbidden romance, and if you do, then read it twice.” (Stacey Lee, author of The Secret of a Heart Note , Under a Painted Sky, and Outrun the Moon)
Mackenzi Lee earned a BA in history (in the middle of which she took her own Grand Tour of Europe) and an MFA from Simmons College in writing for children and young adults. She loves Diet Coke, sweater weather, and Star Wars. On a perfect day, she can be found enjoying all three. You can spot her on Twitter @themackenzilee, where she curates a weekly story time about badass women from history you probably don’t know about but should.
Mackenzi will be in conversation with Anna-Marie McLemore, author of The Weight of Feathers and the Stonewall Book Award Honoree and National Book Award Nominee When the Moon was Ours
