The Swans of Fifth Avenue Luncheon

Join us as Barbara Rinella takes us on a journey through the lives of the rich and glorious New York high society ladies who were labeled “The Swans” by Truman Capote. These glamorous New York legends who were constantly highlighted in Vogue Magazine include Slim Keith, C.Z. Guest, Gloria Guiness, Pamela Churchill and the most powerful Swan, Barbara “Babe” Cushing Paley.

It is powerful Babe who allows unusual, curious, young Truman Capote to enter this divine circle. How do the Swans react? As the Swans invite Truman into their special, select circle, they will share their gossip with darling, sweet Truman Capote. What will he do with their delicious stories? Will finding their escapades revealed in fiction cause problems among the elegant swans?

Let us go to Fifth Avenue, shop at Bergdorfs, splash water in the fountain at the Plaza, lunch at the best table at Le Pavillon, and attend the famous “Black and White” Ball!

The experience includes lunch at Quail West Country Club. This annual event sells out very fast so reserve your space today to avoid disappointment.
