Literary Lion to Visit Las Ventanas: The Resort Plans “Enchanted Evenings with Salman Rushdie”

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Los Cabos, Mexico – Guests at world-renowned Las Ventanas al Paraíso, A Rosewood Resort are accustomed to rubbing shoulders with celebrities, but now they can break bread with one too when acclaimed author Salman Rushdie visits the resort for a ‘Hot Type Author Series’ event.

Over the years, Las Ventanas has introduced guests to a wide array of luxury hotel innovations – from aromatherapy turndown to Pool Butlers and in-suite telescopes for stargazing and whale watching. “The Enchanted Evenings with Salman Rushdie” offer yet another unusual way for guests to enjoy themselves, and return from their trip with great stories to tell their friends.

The September 4-7, 2008 event will include a reception and two dinners where Rushdie will spend time with guests and discuss his latest novel, The Enchantress of Florence, as well as his other famous works. For more information, please contact Las Ventanas’ Los Angeles Regional Sales Office at 310-824-7781.

Rushdie, who was born in India but today is a British citizen, is one of the most celebrated writers of this century. Among his many books are The Moor’s Last Sigh, The Satanic Verses, The Ground Beneath Her Feet, Haroun and the Sea of Stories and Midnight Children. His latest novel, The Enchantress of Florence, tells the story of a woman trying to establish her identity in a world dominated by men. Rushdie’s numerous awards and recognitions include: Booker Prize for Fiction, James Tait Black Memorial Prize, Arts Council

Writers’ Award, English-Speaking Union Award, Prix du Meilleur Livre Etranger, Writers’ Guild Award, Honorary Professor in the Humanities at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, Distinguished Fellow in Literature at the University of East Anglia, Austrian State Prize for European Literature, Aristeion Literary Prize, and eight honorary doctorates. Rushdie was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in June 2007 for his literary contributions.

Through an exclusive partnership with top U.S. publishing houses, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts’ Hot Type program offers guests at Rosewood resorts the opportunity to read advance copies of books months before they hit book stores. Following the enormous success of this program, Rosewood introduced the Hot Type Author Series, where guests have the chance to meet world-renowned authors at Rosewood properties.
