Bookreporter Talks To

Mar 2, 2023

Fiona Davis joined Carol Fitzgerald for a "Bookaccino Live" Book Group discussion about her novel, THE MAGNOLIA PALACE. Fiona talked about her inspiration to set the book at the Frick Museum. She shared some terrific photos that gave readers background on her characters and research process. She also discussed her other work, including what has drawn her to select particular buildings to feature, and the expert she speaks with before she begins a project, who she consults with along the way. She also explained how her acting career has inspired her writing. The conversation was lively and included what is next for Fiona, THE SPECTACULAR, which takes place at Radio City Music Hall.
