Literary Luncheon at La Quinta with Hampton Sides


Presented in collaboration with the Santa Fe International Literary Festival.

Join us for the inaugural Literary Luncheon at La Quinta with New York Times bestselling author Hampton Sides. Sides, a featured author at this year’s Santa Fe International Literary Festival (May 17-19, 2024) will speak about his newset book, The Wide, Wide Sea (published April 9, 2024 by Penguin Random House), an epic account of the most momentous voyage, which culminated in Captain James Cook’s death in Hawaii, and left a complex and controversial legacy still debated to this day. At once a ferociously-paced story of adventure on the high seas and a searching examination of the complexities and consequences of the Age of Exploration, Sides’ new book  is a major work from one of our finest narrative nonfiction writers. Following the book talk, a light three-course lunch will be served in the La Quinta Ballroom and guests will have the chance to meet with and purchase signed books from the author. 

Please park on the south side of the property, following the signs to the front lawn entrance of the La Quinta Cultural Center.
