Doyenne of decor Jan Showers serves up some serious eye candy via Glamorous Retreats (Abram Books, $30), the follow-up to her bestselling Glamorous Rooms. Out this month, the coffee-table essential features more than 200 never-before-seen photographs of the designer’s work on vacation abodes across the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean — all reflecting her signature blend of Hollywood high style, mid-century modernism and classic 18th-century French. Have your copy signed by Showers Thursday, October 17, 5 to 7 pm, at Forty Five Ten; Tuesday, October 29, at Blue Print; and Wednesday, December 4, at Mecox Gardens. (Times were still TBD for the last two events at press time, so check with the store before you go.)
