Hot Type Author Series with Adam Gopnik at Caneel Bay, a Rosewood Resort
January 04, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsRosewood Hotels & Resorts is proud to announce the newest chapter of its exclusive Hot Type Author Series: world-renowned writer Adam Gopnik. Known for his outstanding work at The New Yorker and his playful Parisian-inspired novels, Paris to the Moon and The King in the Window, Gopnik will be visiting Caneel Bay, A Rosewood Resort, in the U.S. Virgin Islands, January 27th through 31st, 2007, to host a series of private dinners where guests will have the exclusive opportunity to discuss his past works, his adventures in Paris as well as his most recent book, Through the Children’s Gate: A Home in New York with him.
After the extraordinary success of the first Hot Type Author Series Program at Las Ventanas al Paraíso, A Rosewood Resort with Michael Gross, acclaimed author of 740 Park, Rosewood decided to ehance the program by inviting famed authors to the resorts to host more intimate book clubs. The Hot Type Author Series is made possible by Rosewood’s partnership with top publishing houses including Random House, Knopf and Harper Collins, and provides Rosewood guests access to highly-acclaimed authors from around the world. Praised by Harper’s Hideaway Report as the “most unique hotel amenity” of 2005, the Hot Type program demonstrates Rosewood’s commitment to enhancing their guest’s stay through exclusive offerings and luxurious amenities.
“We are thrilled to host Adam Gopnik at Caneel Bay, A Rosewood Resort for our second Hot Type Author Series visit,” said Robert Boulogne, Chief Operating Officer of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. "The Hot Type Author Series is truly a one-of-a-kind amenity that we’re proud to offer our guests. To meet and converse with such talented authors in an intimate setting is a memorable experience to add to an already world-class vacation!"
Gopnik’s book Through the Children’s Gate: A Home in New York collects and expands on his essays from the past five years about life in New York and about raising two children in the shadow of various kinds of sadness. It includes the much-anthologized essays “Bumping into Mr. Ravioli,” about his daughter Olivia’s imaginary friend and “Last of the Metrozoids,” about the life and last year of Kirk Varnedoe.
