TEXAS DESIGN WEEK HOUSTON O f all of the entertaining g u i d e s p e p p e r e d with recipes and seasonal tableaux, t h e g a t h e r i n g s showcased in India Hicks' book An Entertaining Story (Rizzoli) are ones we would actually want to attend. The hostess — as well as designer, entrepreneur, New York Times best-selling author, Bravo Top Design host, and mother of five — presents her slightly madcap spin on entertaining with breezy style and sense of humor. The book begins with the most important meal of the day — cocktail hour — and moves to Panic Dinner, when you find yourself suddenly playing host, interspersed with memorable anecdotes about past party guests such as Mick Jagger. Such gems are plentiful from Hicks, who was born in London and whose father was interior designer David Hicks and her mother, Lady Pamela Hicks. Hicks is granddaughter of the Earl and Countess Mountbatten of Burma, second cousin of the Prince of Wales and was a bridesmaid to Lady Diana and Prince Charles. She's lived in the Bahamas for 26 years. Hicks will discuss her book and life in an illustrated talk followed by a book signing Wednesday, April 27, at OKA.
