Over the years, we have had many great moments with the Social Mayor of Miami, philanthropist, author, entrepreneur and Real Housewives of Miami star Lea Black. It was back in April that we attended the first book signing for her first novel, Red Carpets and White Lies [see here]. We followed that up in May when we spoke with Lea for an in-depth CYInterview on her book [see here].
For 20 years, Lea put on The Blacks’ Annual Gala in Miami attended by a who’s who of the city, as well as a variety of A-list stars from out of town. Tomorrow, she will be at one of the biggest yearly city events, the Miami Book Fair International. Mrs. Black will be taking questions about her book and signing copies. Details of the event are below. If you are in the Miami area, go out and see Lea Black at this great event and hear some great stories about the city.
A few weeks ago we attended the kickoff for Lea Black’s first novel, Red Carpets and White Lies [see here]. The Coral Gables event, hosted by musician and producer Emilio Estefan, was enjoyed by many. Mrs. Black, the “Social Mayor of Miami,” Real Housewives of Miami star, philanthropist, entrepreneur, wife of prominent attorney Roy Black, mother and now author joined featured columnist Jay Bildstein and me, for an in-depth conversation about her first work of fiction.
A jam packed crowd came out for the debut of the Social Mayor of Miami, Lea Black’s foray into the literary world. The philanthropist, entrepreneur and Real Housewives of Miami Star spoke to the assembled about her first book, a work of fiction entitled Red Carpets & White Lies: A Novel. The event took place in Coral Gables, at Books & Books.
Lea fielded questions from the attendees including: What inspired her to write the book? Did her being on the Real Housewives of Miami influence its contents in anyway? And, there was one particular question about her favorite high society parties, from one of South Beach’s notable nightlife personalities, Ingrid Casares. Following the evening’s question and answer session, Lea signed copies of her book for friends and fans.
