STUART, Fla. - Jan. 28, 2014 - PRLog -- Booklovers have a great afternoon to look forward to in March at the always popular “Booked for Lunch” author event to be held on Thursday, March 6  from 11:30 am to 2 pm, at Piper’s Landing Yacht and Country Club in Palm City.  Past years have seen sold-out attendance so don’t delay in purchasing your tickets. Space is limited for this event. This is the 11th year that the Friends of the Martin County Library System are sponsoring the event. Proceeds from the luncheon will be used to support library programs for children and adults.

         Scott Eyman, former literary and art critic for the The Palm Beach Post and author of 11 books, will be the featured speaker.  Scott will be talking about his latest book that he co-authored with actor Robert Wagner , You Must Remember This, which is being released in March.  Eyman promises to delve into movie star life behind the scenes which should make for an interesting conversation.

         A reviewer on commented,” With a career spanning more than five decades, few actors are more qualified to recount the glamorous Hollywood era of the late 1940’s and early 1950’s than Robert Wagner. You Must Remember This is Wagner’s ode to a bygone age, to its incomparable style and how it was displayed, and to its legendary stars. Wagner revisits the houses, restaurants, and other haunts of Hollywood’s elite, offering an intimate view of their lives on and off screen. He fondly recounts mythic figures simply entertaining at home among friends, away from the publicity machine and public eye that morphed into today’s paparazzi culture. Wagner also discusses the business of Hollywood and its evolution from an industry once dominated by moguls to one run by agents, and examines the career arcs of his peers, carefully considering why some survived and others faded. Engaging and entertaining, You Must Remember This is a window into the splendors of an erstwhile era and an opportunity for readers to live vicariously through one its most beloved leading men”.

         Eyman’s interest in Hollywood legends has been the subject of many of his books including The New York Times bestseller “Pieces of My Heart” that he also co-authored with veteran actor Robert Wagner.

         Barnes and Noble will be selling books and guests at the luncheon will be able to purchase a signed copy of his latest publication. Scott will also be a moderator at BookMania! on March 8 at Martin County High School.

         Mr. Eyman has penned a biography “John Wayne: The Life and Legend”, scheduled for release on April 1, 2014.

         Sponsors for the event to date include Publix Supermarket Charities, The Complete Rod Taylor site ( and media sponsors WQCS 88.9 FM and Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers and TC Palm.
