As their relationship develops, she gradually encourages Adam to change in various ways that surprise his older friends, Jenny and Philip. However, as events progress, Evelyn's antics become darker and darker as her influence begins to twist Adam and his friends in hurtful ways.

Elsie de Wolfe's Paris: An Illustrated Talk and Book Signing
Thursday, April 30
5:00 p.m. Author Reception
6:00 p.m. Talk and Book Signing
Join one-time Shorewood resident Charlie Scheips for a richly-illustrated presentation about his new book, Elsie de Wolfe’s Paris: Frivolity Before the Storm. He will discuss the creation of the book, which focuses on the glamorous late 1930s Paris through the lens of famed American born interior decorator Elsie de Wolfe’s swank social swirl, as the dark clouds of war spread over Europe. This talk will also feature recent photographs of de Wolfe’s beloved Villa Trianon in Versailles that has languished since de Wolfe’s death in 1950. Incredibly, Scheips’s well-received book (published in late 2014) has now inspired a complete renovation of the property to its former glory. Books will be available for purchase. Co-hosted by Boswell Book Company.
