Celebrity Designer India Hicks to Appear at Broward Public Library Foundation’s Annual LitLUNCH!

LitLUNCH! 2018, a professional women’s lunch to help support the 2018 Literary Feast will host designer, India Hicks

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- November 30, 2017 – The Broward Public Library Foundation welcomes author and entrepreneur India Hicks. In 1981, India was a bridesmaid to Lady Diana Spencer at her wedding to Prince Charles. A former fashion model, India is the author of three books: "Island Life", "Island Beauty", and, most recently, "Island Style". 

Join us for LitLUNCH! on February 2, 2018 to hear India’s story, shop her exclusive collection of well-crafted gifts, beauty products and accessories and learn how you can achieve her famously undone, Caribbean decorating style. LitLUNCH! is the kick-off to Literary Feast 2018, the Broward Public Library Foundation’s annual fundraising event. This year LitLUNCH! will be held on Friday, February 2, 2018 beginning at 11:15 a.m. at the Mary N. Porter Riverview Ballroom (201 SW 5th Ave, Fort Lauderdale).

“Island Style” invites readers into India Hick’s world. The book explores both her décor and lifestyle, and how India creates her sanctuary. Timeless and under-decorated, her rooms combine carefree Caribbean culture with British colonial form and formality. The book has ten chapters that will explain to readers about the island life palette she uses, how each room has its purpose and how to best utilize that and the “more is more” style that India believes in. 

LitLUNCH! 2018 co-chairs are Catalina Alvalos of Tripp Scott attorneys at law, Laurie Menekou of Conceptual Communications and Lori Suarez, co-founder of Venice Magazine.

Tickets are $75. Proceeds support Broward County Library children’s literacy programs and services funded by the Broward Public Library Foundation. For LitLUNCH! tickets and sponsorship information, please visit www.bplfoundation.org/litlunch or contact Jennifer Keljik at 954-357-7384.
