Book Signing with Felix Francis!

We were so lucky to have famed author, Felix Francis, come to Halcyon House Antiques to sign his newest book, which was just released on October 7th! damage (2)

Felix is in Baltimore for a few days, and Halcyon House Antiques held an English Drinks Party and Book Signing for him. Dick Francis’s DAMAGE, by Felix Francis has just been released, so it was extra special to be able to get the book on its release date! It’s also the 50th book that the Francis’s have written, so that’s quite an accomplishment.IMG_4527Felix brought along copies of the covers of all 50 books, which have been done and redone over time, moving from very modern graphics, to the more realistic cover of his newest book. If you look closely below, you can see several of the older titles arranged on the mantel and the newest book on the desk.IMG_4521

Since this was an English drinks party, we had a pitcher full of Pims and some noshes for everyone!IMG_4516

Felix was charming and gave a nice background chat to the crowd and then spent the next hour or more signing books for everyone… and several books for a number of the guests!IMG_4553IMG_4561He was also very kind about posing with the guests, many of whom were from the local hunts, or were riders themselves. IMG_4563Lots of our friends were on hand to celebrate and to get an early start on picking up a unique Christmas present!IMG_4547IMG_4568IMG_4574As usual, the flowers at Halcyon House Antiques were gorgeous and from the gardens up at the farm. IMG_4520IMG_4559IMG_4580Felix is on a cross-country tour now, so check his Facebook page to see where he’ll be next. And if you’re looking for a great Christmas present, Halcyon House has a dozen or so signed copies of DAMAGE for sale.
