Join us for an evening with Melanie Benjamin, the bestselling author of The Swans of Fifth Avenue and The Aviator’s Wife, and step back in time to Paris and the most glamorous hotel in the world.
Nothing bad can happen at the Ritz; inside its gilded walls every woman looks beautiful, every man appears witty. Favored guests like Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Coco Chanel, and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor walk through its famous doors, where they’re welcomed and pampered by Blanche Auzello and her husband, Claude, the director. The Auzellos are the mistress and master of the Ritz, allowing the glamour and glitz to take their mind off their troubled marriage, and off the secrets that they keep from their guests—and each other…
Based on true events, Mistress of the Ritz is a taut tale of suspense wrapped up in a love story for the ages, the inspiring story of a woman and a man who discover the best in each other amid the turbulence of war.
