    The author of “Fifty Shades of Grey” will be in Connecticut next month to speak about her new romance novel, “The Mister,” at the OMNI Hotel in New Haven.

    RJ Julia is hosting the event with E L James at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 14. 

    A news release from RJ Julia calls “The Mister” a “roller-coaster ride of danger and desire that leaves the reader breathless to the very last page.”

    James has said "The Mister" is a modern Cinderella story, a "thrilling and sensual" fairy tale. It features a rich Londoner who "has rarely slept alone" and a beautiful woman who is an "alluring mystery."

    Tickets for EL James in conversation with Roxanne Coady, the owner of RJ Julia Bookseller, cost $35 per person, plus tax, and include admission to the event, one copy of “The Mister,” admission to the signing line to meet E L James and party favors.

    “If you joined us when E L was here in 2012, you'll know that this will be a night to remember!,” the RJ Julia website says. 

    James will only sign two books per person, one of which could be personalized, but all books must be purchased at the event. Attendees will not be allowed to have books from home signed.
