“What historical (real) person and historical book character you'd like to invite for dinner?”
Elizabeth Hoyt, DUKE OF MIDNIGHT:
Oscar Wilde would be fun, though I have the feeling he wouldn't be all that nice in person. Albus Dumbledore for the book character!
Eileen Dreyer, ONCE A RAKE:
Oh, so many choices. And if we're going to stay in that time period, so many fascinating people. I think, though, I'd go with Fanny Burney, who was a playwright and diarist of the age, because she knew everybody and we could have a good gossip about everybody from the Prince Regent to Wellington to Napoleon.
What fictional character would I invite alongside? I think I would love to have Sir Percy Blakeny, the Scarlet Pimpernel himself. Can you imagine the conversation? I think it would be marvelous. And I'd get to hear him recite his famous poem.
“They seek him here
They seek him there,
Is he in heaven?
Is he in hell?
That demmed elusive Pimpernel.”
Jennifer Delamere, A LADY MOST LOVELY:
Historical (real) person: William Shakespeare. I’m such a fan of his plays, and I’m intrigued by the Elizabethan England in which he lived. It would be wonderful to pepper him with questions about his life and times.
Historical book character: Amelia Peabody Emerson, the intrepid Victorian-era archeologist from Elizabeth Peters’s mystery series. I love how plucky and fearless she is. In fact, I’d love to meet the entire cast of characters in those books—especially her handsome and equally dauntless husband Radcliffe Emerson.
Anne Barton, ONCE SHE WAS TEMPTED:
I’d invite Amelia Earhart and Emma Woodhouse (from Jane Austen’s Emma) to my dinner party—they’re both fascinating and adventurous in their own ways, and I’d love to watch Emma play matchmaker for Amelia and all the other guests.
Lily Dalton, NEVER DESIRE A DUKE:
I know I should say something like Jane Austen and Mr. Darcy, but I’m going with Abraham Lincoln and Count Dracula. Could you imagine sitting at that table all night?
