Attend Dorothea Benton Frank’s Fan Fest Weekend

With Dorothea Benton Frank, or “Dottie” as she’s affectionately known by fans and friends, publishing her 20th novel Queen Bee in May, her publisher William Morrow decided to bring her popular Fan Fest.

Scheduled for April 11-14 in Charleston, North Carolina, Dorothea Benton Frank Fanfest will be a fun-filled weekend of Southern charm and hospitality for fans of the bestselling author. Activities include a walking tour of historic downtown Charleston, with some sights and a few characters from Frank’s novels to shopping King Street and a sunset jaunt to Sullivan’s Island.

Fans will get to experience Dottie’s lowcountry up close and personal. Perhaps no one is more excited about Fanfest than the author herself, who describes the weekend as “four days of fun and history: walking tours downtown with Tommy Dew, a sunset jazz cruise, a tour of Fort Moultrie, a barbecue at Wild Dunes, a biscuit making demo with Carrie from Callie’s, a Bloody party at Croghan’s, and I’m making lunch on Saturday for everyone at my house on Sullivan’s Island.”

She also says she’s looking forward to spending some time with her readers. “After 20 books and all their support, I owe them a great time,” she adds.

Tickets are still available for “The Drive By,” which includes Dottie’s tour of Sullivan’s Island and lunch at her home.
