a film by Romola Garai
Written and directed by Romola Garai, AMULET explores the story of Tomaz, an ex-soldier from an unnamed foreign conflict, living in strained circumstances in London. Haunted by his past, he is offered a place to stay in a decaying, claustrophobic house, inhabited by an enigmatic young woman and her dying mother. As he starts to fall for his new companion, Tomaz cannot ignore his suspicion that something insidious might also be living alongside them.
Immediately following the film there will be a pre-recorded discussion between filmmaker Romola Garai and The Future of Film is Female’s Caryn Coleman. This conversation is exclusive to virtual cinema and in-theater engagements.

Kristy Woodson Harvey
April 27, 2021
9am Breakfast / 12pm Lunch (SOLD OUT - WAITLIST ONLY)
The fabulous Kristy Woodson Harvey will be touring for her latest novel, Under the Southern Sky, to be released on April 20, 2021. We ask that you “fix” with us by keeping your reservation and enjoying Kristy’s presentation. Her last visit was a huge success. She is smart, witty, engaging…and beautiful!
Her widely acclaimed novels have been praised by publications such as Southern Living, Parade, Working Mother, Entertainment Weekly, and US Weekly as must-reads, and she is the winner of the coveted Lucy Bramlette Patterson Award for Creative Writing and a finalist for the Southern Book Prize. #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Elin Hilderbrand dubbed her “the next major voice in Southern fiction” and Cassandra King Conroy says, “Kristy Woodson Harvey cuts to the heart of what it means to be a born-and-bred Southerner.”
A consistent high producer in her finance job, Kristy parlayed her passion for business, writing, and interiors into her website, Design Chic, where she blogs to more than 450,000 followers each day about how a beautiful home can be the catalyst for a beautiful life. Design Chic is the inaugural inductee into Traditional Home’s Design Blogger Hall of Fame and the winner of the International Amara Award for Best Luxury Blog. Kristy collaborates with some of today’s most influential brands, designers and architects, procuring seven-figures of sales yearly for her partners.
A Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s school of journalism, Kristy’s writing has appeared in numerous online and print publications including Southern Living, Traditional Home, Parade, USA Today, Domino, Our State and O. Henry. And her master’s degree in English with a concentration in transnational literature is what led to her fascination with writing about what makes the South so special.
Kristy can speak not only to the craft of writing, but also the business side of it both as an author and influencer. Juggling family life, a thriving business and a bustling writing career—through which she speaks upwards of 85 times a year at venues all over the country from New York’s 92nd Street Y to aboard California’s Queen Mary—Kristy is a true standout in the writing world and brings excellence to every project she undertakes.
Under the Southern Sky (Release Date April 20, 2021):
Two childhood friends discover that love—and family—can be found in unconventional ways in this timely, moving novel from the USA TODAY bestselling author of the “beautifully Southern, evocative Peachtree Bluff series” (Kristin Harmel, internationally bestselling author of The Winemaker’s Wife).
Recently separated Amelia Buxton, a dedicated journalist, never expected that uncovering the biggest story of her career would become deeply personal. But when she discovers that a cluster of embryos belonging to her childhood friend Parker and his late wife Greer have been deemed “abandoned,” she’s put in the unenviable position of telling Parker—and dredging up old wounds in the process.
Parker has been unable to move forward since the loss of his beloved wife three years ago. He has all but forgotten about the frozen embryos, but once Amelia reveals her discovery, he knows that if he ever wants to get a part of Greer back, he’ll need to accept his fate as a single father and find a surrogate.
Each dealing with their own private griefs, Parker and Amelia slowly begin to find solace in one another as they navigate an uncertain future against the backdrop of the pristine waters of their childhood home, Buxton Beach. The journey of self-discovery leads them to an unforgettable and life-changing lesson: Family—the one you’re born into and the one you choose—is always closer than you think.
Mary Kay Andrews
May 4, 2021
9am Breakfast / 12pm Lunch
Mary Kay Andrews is the New York Times bestselling author of 27 novels (including Hello, Summer; Sunset Beach; The High Tide Club; The Weekenders; Beach Town; Save the Date; Ladies’ Night; Christmas Bliss; Spring Fever; Summer Rental; The Fixer Upper; Deep Dish; Blue Christmas; Savannah Breeze; Hissy Fit; Little Bitty Lies; and Savannah Blues), and one cookbook, The Beach House Cookbook.
A native of St. Petersburg, Florida, she earned a B.A. in journalism from The University of Georgia. After a 14-year career working as a reporter at newspapers including The Savannah Morning News, The Marietta Journal, and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, where she spent the final ten years of her career, she left journalism in 1991 to write fiction.
She and her family divide their time between Atlanta and Tybee Island, GA, where they cook up new recipes in two restored beach homes, The Breeze Inn and Ebbtide—both named after fictional places in Mary Kay’s novels, and both available to rent through Tybee Vacation Rentals. In between cooking, spoiling her grandkids, and plotting her next novel, Mary Kay is an intrepid treasure hunter whose favorite pastime is junking and fixing up old houses.
The Newcomer (Release Date MAY 4, 2022):
The New York Times bestselling author and Queen of the Beach Reads delivers her next page-turner for the summer.
Letty Carnahan is in trouble. She’s on the run from New York City; she has her four-year-old niece, Maya in tow, and her sister was found dead in the entry hall of her glamorous townhome. Letty believes she knows who did it: her sister’s awful, money-grubbing ex-husband, Eli Wingfield. Letty can’t forget her sister Tara’s insistence: “if anything bad ever happens to me–It’s Eli. Promise me you’ll take Maya and run. Promise me.”
But run where? The only clue Tara has left behind is a faded magazine story about a sleepy mom-and-pop motel on Florida’s Gulf Coast.
Certain that the police and Tara’s ex are hot on her trail, Letty leaves her own life behind without a backwards glance, knowing she will somehow get justice for Tara, and sets out for her destination–The Murmuring Surf.
The Surf, as regulars call it, is the winter home of a close-knit but quarrelsome group of retirees and snowbirds who regard this newcomer and her adorable niece with suspicion and more than a little curiosity. There’s a No Vacancy sign swinging from the neon motel marquee, but the motel’s longtime owner Ava DeCurtis takes Letty in, offers her a room and eventually a job, much to the disapproval of Ava’s cynical son Joe, a local police detective whose every instinct tells him that Letty is a dangerous fugitive, possibly even a kidnapper and murderer.
As Letty tries to settle into her new life and help heal Maya’s trauma, she’s preoccupied as her late sister’s troubled past and connection to the motel are revealed, all while trying to deal with the attractive detective’s unwelcome advances. Is Joe a would-be suitor? Or a cop determined to betray her confidence and put her behind bars?
