London's Luxury Park Lane Hotel Gets Rave Reviews for Its Exclusive Cultural Events

Grosvenor House, A JW Marriott Hotel Gratifies Bibliophiles Everywhere With Its Literati Book Club

LONDON--(Marketwired - Aug 14, 2013) - In a world largely given over to electronic amusements, the Literati Book Club at Grosvenor House, A JW Marriott Hotel is a beacon of hope for anyone who still appreciates the written word (even if it is read on a digital screen). Combining renowned authors with small groups and big discussions, Literati's take on the book club is as groundbreaking as the bestsellers that are featured.

Grosvenor House, a Central London hotel steeped in tradition, has added a dash of luxury to the book-club concept by featuring authors at its events. The hotel collaborates with publishers to bring authors from every genre to the property for an evening of canapés, welcome drinks and conversation over whichever new page-turner the author is about to release. Guests, whether they've booked rooms at this luxurious Central London hotel or are just visiting for the evening, leave with a signed copy of the book and, hopefully, the memory of a personal interaction or two with the featured author.

Already readers are clamoring for tickets to the luxury Park Lane London hotel's upcoming events. The first is with Michael Dobbs, who will present his new book, "A Ghost at the Door," on September 11, 2013. Dobbs previously authored "House of Cards," which was adapted for a BAFTA-winning BBC production and is currently being made into a U.S. film starring Kevin Spacey. Dobbs's professional background, which includes positions as Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party and Deputy Chairman of Saatchi & Saatchi, undoubtedly informs his book's returning protagonist, Harry Jones, although Jones has perhaps a few more skeletons in his closet.

After Dobbs reveals his latest novel at Literati, guests can return on October 17, 2013 to meet with Kate Adie, a former BBC Chief News Correspondent who launched the Literati Book Club in 2010 with her book, "Into Danger." This time, she will present her latest release, "Fighting on the Home Front," which explores how World War I changed the roles of women for good, from rising hem lines to the sense that working outside the home was not only possible but preferable.

Tickets for each Literati event are priced at £20 apiece, and Literati room rates are available. After the book club, guests are invited to reserve a table at the Park Lane luxury hotel's JW Steakhouse to continue the conversation and tuck into some of the best steak to be had in London.
