Marie Bostwick

Marie Bostwick is a New York Times and USA Today Bestseller of nineteen books of contemporary and historical fiction. Drawing on her lifelong love of quilting and themes of special relevance to modern women, Marie’s Cobbled Court Quilt series has gained a dedicated following among quilters as well as those who’ve never threaded a needle. A film adaptation of her book The Second Sister, “Christmas Everlasting,” debuted on the Hallmark Channel as a Hallmark Hall of Fame feature in November 2018, starring Patti LaBelle. Marie’s most recent novel, The Restoration of Celia Fairchild, published by William Morrow in March 2021, was Country Living magazine’s “Front Porch Read” for March, and was included in Parade magazine’s list of 25 “Favorite Books of Spring” list. Marie will be appearing at Word of South with the musician Del Suggs and the author Karen White.
