Reese Witherspoon: Whiskey in a Teacup Tour

Sep 19 , 2018 · BELK THEATER at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center

Prices begin at $59.00

Presented by: Blumenthal Performing Arts

Grab your friends and join Reese Witherspoon for a fun night of lively conversation! With her debut book, Whiskey in a Teacup, the Academy award-winning actress, producer, and entrepreneur invites you into her world, where she infuses the southern style, parties, and traditions she loves with contemporary flair and charm. Reese will share personal stories about what growing up in the South taught her about life, love, and work, and fans will learn how she entertains, decorates her home, and makes holidays special for her family. She will be joined by a special guest for the conversation and audiences will learn just how easy it is to bring a little bit of Reese’s world into their home, no matter where they live.

Each ticket includes a copy of Reese’s book, Whiskey in a Teacup (a $35 value, published by Touchstone/Simon & Schuster). VIP ticket holders will walk away with a limited-edition Draper James tote bag filled with some of Reese’s favorite products.
