Reunion Beach: Stories Inspired by Dorothea Benton Frank


In stores and everywhere books are sold: April 27, 2021



A note from Patti:


It was such a shocking loss when my dear friend, Dorothea Benton Frank passed away. Such a powerful storyteller; such an integral part of the Lowcountry and its community of writers and readers. Such a good and true friend. I remember the day I met her; she always remembered what I was wearing, which tells you so much about her! She noticed. She cared. I miss her all the time.


When her editor Carrie Feron came to me and said “Would you write a short story for a compilation to honor the next book Dottie would have written called Reunion Beach," I said yes immediately.


And that book — that book honoring Dottie Frank — is out today.

Reunion Beach with my story The Bridesmaids.
