Books by the Sea will be hosting national best-selling, and local author, Jamie Cat Callan (French Women Don’t Sleep Alone) at the store Saturday, February 9,
from 2 – 4 pm, in celebration of Osterville’s Eighth Annual Chocolate Festival. Jamie will be signing her latest book Bonjour Happiness. She will also be talking about her upcoming new book Ooh La La!: French Women's Secrets to Feeling Beautiful Every Day, which will be published later this spring.
French women didn't invent happiness. But they know a thing or two about joie de vivre--being alive to each delicious moment. As a middle-aged woman living in youth-obsessed America, Callan went to France to find answers for aging gracefully and to find joy in her imperfect body. Her mission was not to find the Fountain of Youth, but to find the Fountain of Happiness.
As Jamie traveled through France as an adult, she gained more insight into the differences between French and American women. French women don't worry about being thin enough, young enough, or accomplished enough. They age gracefully and celebrate their bodies. They know how to balance their lives--to love food without overeating, to work hard but not too much, to relish friends and family, and still make time for themselves. Perfection isn't attainable, but happiness always is. Bonjour Happiness is an uplifting, revelatory book which shows every woman how to embrace it--and savor it.
So don’t worry about the calories flowing in the streets of Osterville during the Chocolate Festival – they’re worth it! Besides, chocolate is one of the key ingredients to happiness!
All are invited to attend. Books By The Sea is located at 846 Main Street, Osterville, MA. For more information, please call the store at 508-420-9400.
