Sisi: Empress on Her Own     
by Allison Pataki     


Tuesday, March 8
8:00 PM

A prolific and noteworthy newcomer to historical fiction, Allison Pataki brings to life women lost in history. Ms. Pataki is The New York Times bestselling author of The Traitor’s Wife and The Accidental Empress, which introduces Sisi (the family nickname for Empress Elisabeth of Austria-Hungary), recognized as the “most beautiful woman in the world, with an intelligence, charisma, and devotion to save her empire that made her a legend. The book provides great insight into the Austro-Hungarian Empire, captivating the reader whereby one never wants the book to end. Readers’ wishes are now met with the sequel Sisi: Empress on Her Own. With a brief introduction by the Hungarian Consul General Ferenc Kuman, Allison Pataki will launch her latest novel.
   “Readers will… enjoy the glorious dilemma of whether to turn the pages swiftly…or to linger and luxuriate in Allison Pataki’s vivid, sumptuous descriptions of the Hapsburg court.” — Jennifer Chiaverini, New York Times bestselling author.
   Allison Pataki, daughter of former New York State governor George E. and Libby Pataki, was inspired to write about Sisi by her family’s deep roots in the former Habsburg empire. She graduated cum laude from Yale University, majoring in English, and spent several years writing for TV and online news outlets. Allison is the co-founder of the nonprofit organization ReConnect Hungary.
