Mulroneys Host Elegant Book Launch for Award-winning Camilla Gibb


Mila and Brian Mulroney hosted an elegant cocktail party at the Mount Royal Club to launch Camilla Gibb‘s latest book, The Beauty of Humanity Movement.  Camilla was accompanied by Brad Martin, CEO, Random House, and Kristin Cochrane, Double Day Canada.  Born in London, Gibb has a Ph.D. in social anthropology from Oxford University, and spent time in Ethiopia for field research on her thesis. Her novels – this is her fourth – have been translated into fourteen languages.

The Beauty of Humanity Movement was graciously offered to guests by Brian, who added,  ‘’I hope that in return, you might would purchase a few  as holiday gifts’’ – which they did, lining up for autographed copies. (One prominent senator bought four!)

Ladies were chicly stylish.  Most wore beautifully-tailored to-the-knee skirts or dresses.  And of course, the jewels were discrete – and real. Rows of pretty pearls worn by most.  Mila was Milan-chic in palest pink and grey, accented by a grouping of sensational silver bracelets.
