Helen Ellis

June 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Magic City Books is thrilled to welcome Helen Ellis for a free event to celebrate the paperback release of her latest book, Kiss Me in the Coral Lounge: Intimate Confessions from a Happy Marriage. This event will start at 7:00 pm and will be hosted at the Tulsa Country Club, 701 N Union Avenue (just northwest of downtown Tulsa).

Even twenty years into marriage, Helen Ellis’s husband still makes her heart pitter patter. The New York Times bestselling author paints a portrait of true romance for our times in these surprising, sexy, and hilariously frank essays about love, marriage, and her last first kiss.

Helen will be in conversation with Magic City Books co-founder Jeff Martin. The event is free and open to the public and copies of Kiss Me in the Coral Lounge and other books by Helen Ellis will be available for sale. There will also be a cash bar at the event.

Kiss Me in the Coral Lounge will be available in paperback at Magic City Books starting June 25. Copies are available for pre-order at: https://magiccitybooks.square.site/product/kiss-me-in-the-coral-lounge/2336.

About Kiss Me in the Coral Lounge

Even twenty years into marriage, Helen Ellis’s husband still makes her heart pitter patter. The New York Times bestselling author paints a portrait of true romance for our times in these surprising, sexy, and hilariously frank essays about love, marriage, and her last first kiss.

“Ellis is one of our greatest living humorists, in the same league as Sedaris and Irby…A fascinating portrait of middle-aged love.” –Ann Napolitano, New York Times bestselling author of Dear Edward

Welcome to the Coral Lounge, a room in Helen Ellis’s New York City apartment painted such an exuberant shade that a Peeping Tom left a sticky note asking for the color. It is in the Coral Lounge where all the parties happen: A game called “What’s in the box?” makes its uproarious debut, the Puzzle Posse pounces on a 500-piece jigsaw of a beheaded priest, and guests don blindfolds for a raucous bridal shower.

When the pandemic shuts down the city, the Coral Lounge becomes a place of refuge, where Helen and her husband binge-watch Joan Collins’s Dynasty, dote on two spoiled cats, and where Helen discovers that even twenty years into marriage, her husband still makes her heart pitter patter.

Helen Ellis is the author of Bring Your Baggage and Don’t Pack LightSouthern Lady Code, American Housewife and Eating the Cheshire Cat. Raised in Alabama, she lives with her husband in New York City. She is a poker player and a plant lady. You can find her on Instagram @HelenEllisAuthor.
