New York Times best-selling novel "The Postmistress" will debut in paperback at the University of South Carolina Beaufort Lunch With Author series Feb. 3.

The luncheon will be held at noon Feb. 3 at the Sea Pines Resort Conference Center, 11 Lighthouse Lane, Hilton Head Island. Blake's talk and book signing will follow lunch. Cost is $42; registration is required.
