Among the many entertainment opps at Mohegan Sun is their Winning Authors series - which does not, by the way, refer to writers who've done well at the slots.
No, it's a reference to the fact that the authors who appear in the program are very successful in terms of literary popularity.
Consider Elin Hildebrand, whose dozen or so beach-read novels - all set on Nantucket - are huge bestsellers. Her latest is called "Beautiful Day," and Hildebrand appears Sunday in the Sun's Cabaret Theater for a reading and discussion and a subsequent signing in the Sun's The Shops concourse.
"Beautiful Day" is based around the premise of a "Notebook" of advice written by a mortally ill mother when she realizes she won't live to see her daughter's wedding.
