Champagne Widows; Murder at the Porte de Versailles


March is Women’s History Month, which started in Santa Rosa, Calif., in 1980, and is now celebrated across the country. Two Bay Area best-selling authors will be in conversation to celebrate glorious women of the past and to discuss the female protagonists from their upcoming titles:

Champagne Widows by Rebecca Rosenberg - 1815. The first woman of champagne battles pandemics, mental illness, sexism, wars, and even Napoleon Bonaparte to forge her champagne empire. In the ultimate showdown, Veuve Clicquot risks imprisonment and even death, defying Napoleon himself.

Murder at the Porte de Versailles by Cara Black - This riveting 20th installment in her New York Times best-selling Parisian detective series entangles private investigator Aimée Leduc in a dangerous web of international spycraft and terrorist threats in Paris’s 15th arrondissement.


Rebecca Rosenberg is an award-winning novelist, champagne geek, and lavender farmer. Rebecca first fell in love with methode champenoise in Sonoma Valley, California. Over decades of delicious research, she has explored the wine cellars of France, Spain, Italy, and California in search of fine champagne. When Rebecca discovered the real-life stories of the Champagne Widows of France, she knew she’d dedicate years to telling the stories of these remarkable women who made champagne the worldwide phenomenon it is today. Rebecca is a champagne historian, tour guide, and champagne cocktail expert for Breathless Wines. Other award-winning novels include The Secret Life of Mrs. London and Gold Digger, the Remarkable Baby Doe Tabor.

Cara Black is the author of nineteen books in the New York Times bestselling Aimée Leduc series.
