Literary Luncheon: Lynne Hinton


Main Street Books invites you to an author luncheon featuring Lynne Hinton at Flatiron Kitchen + Taphouse. Converse with Lynne about her latest novel, The View from Here, over food and drink by purchasing your tickets below or in the store by July 15th. Tickets include admission to the luncheon, an entree and beverage, and a copy of The View from Here.

Lynne Hinton is the author of 20 books, including Pie Town and the NY Times Bestseller, Friendship Cake. In addition, she has penned a mystery series under the name Jackie Lynn, and she is a regular guest columnist in the Faith and Values Section for The Charlotte Observer.

She has been endorsed by authors Sue Monk Kidd, Rita Mae Brown, Silas House, Malachy McCourt, Jacquelyn Mitchard, and her favorite, Dr. Maya Angelou, who wrote about the novel Friendship Cake, "I would welcome a friendship with Lynne Hinton. I would welcome an invitation to sit down at her table, but mostly I would welcome her next book."


Her work has been compared to great writers like Eudora Welty, Rebecca Wells, and Jan Karon. And the journal Publishers Weekly has written, "Hinton has a knack in her novels for tapping into a woman’s longings for lifelong, authentic, messy friendships."

Lynne Hinton was born and raised in North Carolina. She is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ and has served as a hospice chaplain and as a senior pastor in Guilford County and Asheboro, North Carolina and in Rio Rancho, New Mexico and as the interim pastor in northeastern Washington.
