Event description

Description

Internationally recognized artist and author Mary Whyte will be discussing her latest book, We the People: Portraits of Veterans in America at a Book Your Lunch event on Tuesday, November 19th at noon at the Greenville Country Club (239 Byrd Boulevard).

Tickets to this event are $30, and include lunch. You will have a choice of a Carolina Blend Salad (gluten free), Asian Chicken Wrap, or Brooklyn Style Deli Sandwich for lunch plus chocolate torte for dessert. Please specify your meal choice at checkout. Paperback copies of We the People can be added on at checkout for $37.09, and hardback copies can be added on at checkout for $52.99.

We will start promptly at noon, so we recommend arriving between 11:30 and 11:45 to get checked in and pick out your seat. The author will speak about her book, take questions from the audience, and then we will all chat over lunch. After dessert, the author will be happy to sign your books.



We the people--these words embody the ethos of what it means to be an American citizen. As individuals we are a tapestry of colors and creeds; united we are a nation committed to preserving our hard-earned freedom. In this heart-stirring collection of watercolor portraits of military veterans--one from each of the fifty states--artist Mary Whyte captures this ethos as well as the dedication, responsibility, and courage it takes to fulfill that promise.

Those who raise their hands to serve may join for different reasons, but all--along with their families--make the extraordinary commitment to place the needs of the country before their own. Whyte gives us the opportunity to meet and to see some of them--to really see them. Whyte's portrait of America includes individuals from many walks of life, some still active duty, and from every branch: women and men, old and young, and from a wide swath of ethnicities, befitting our glorious melting pot. From a mayor to an astronaut, from a teacher to a garbage collector, from a business entrepreneur to someone who is homeless, Whyte renders their unique and exceptional lives with great care and gentle brush strokes.

We the People is not only a tour across and through these vast United States, it is a tour through the heart and soul, the duty and the commitment of the people who protect not only our Constitution and our country but our very lives. We can only be deeply grateful, inspired, and humbled by all of them.
