As a writer, Jane Green is familiar with art imitating life.
Now, life is imitating art.
The Westport author is about to bring a scene from her latest novel to life, at Gilbertie’s Herb Garden in Easton.
In The Sunshine Sisters, Lizzy — one of 3 sisters estranged from their difficult, self-absorbed mother — is a chef who regularly hosts pop-up supper clubs on rooftops and farms in the tri-state area. Eventually, she sets up a permanent restaurant at a farm in … Easton.
Green’s publisher, Penguin Random House, is celebrating her “perfect summer novel” by recreating Lizzy’s supper club on the farm.
The date is Saturday, June 3 (6:30 p.m.). There will be farm-to-table food, signature cocktails, signed copies of the book, and goody bags from local sponsors.
A portion of all proceeds goes to Pink Aid, the breast cancer support group.
Green is well known for her 17 best-sellers. But she’s also spent a lifetime creating recipes, cooking for family and friends, and entertaining at her home here in Westport.
Readers love her novels — and her inventive dishes, photos of homemade food and recollections of special meals, shared online and in her cookbook Good Taste.
Now it all comes together, in real time and real life.
For a real good cause.
