Words and Wine with Lettie Teague, Author of Dear Readers, and Riders: The Beloved Books, Faithful Fans, and Hidden Private Life of Marguerite Henry

Join us for Words and Wine with Lettie Teague, author of Dear Readers and Riders, the new biography of Marguerite Henry, the much-beloved best-selling children's book author (Misty of Chincoteague and 58 other mostly horse-centric books) with a special guest appearance by Devon Settle, granddaughter of Wesley Dennis, the acclaimed illustrator, and Marguerite's long-time collaborator and friend.

A horsewoman as well as an oenophile, Lettie Teague has been The Wall Street Journal’s wine columnist since 2010. Before that, she was the executive wine editor and columnist for Food & Wine magazine. She is the author of two books Wine in Words and Educating Peter, and co-author and illustrator of Fear of Wine. Her writing has won three James Beard Awards, including the M.F.K. Fisher Distinguished Writing Award. Most importantly, Teague has been a fan of best-selling children’s book author Marguerite Henry since she was nine.
