Barbara Taylor Bradford Will Introduce Her Newest Novel At Chamber Luncheon

August 6, 2008

Bestselling author Barbara Taylor Bradford will introduce her newest novel, “Being Elizabeth,” at the Greater Southwest Houston Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Sept. 23 at Hotel ZaZa, 5701 Main St.

The luncheon will be followed by a high tea honoring Bradford on Sept. 24 at the Hilton Houston Post Oak, 2001 Post Oak Blvd. Both events are hosted by Philamena Baird, and benefit Chamber programs.

Copies of “Being Elizabeth” will be available for purchase, and Bradford will be available for autographs. Fifteen percent of the book sales will benefit the Chamber’s educational endeavors.

Bradford, who received the Order of the British Empire from Queen Elizabeth in 2007, began her career as a typist for the Yorkshire Evening Post at the age of 15. She quickly moved to a reporting position and eventually covered everything from crime beats to show business news for publications including the London Evening News, Today Magazine and others.

Bradford wrote a number of children’s and interior decorating books before her career took off in 1976 with the publication of “A Woman of Substance.” Since then, she has written 24 novels, which have been translated into 40 languages and published in 90 countries.

For ticket information, contact the Greater Southwest Houston Chamber at 713-666-1521. Luncheon tickets start at $75 per person and tickets for the high tea start at $50.
