Malibu resident Lilly Lawrence hosted a tea dance on Saturday to celebrate the Malibu Book and Film Society, and to honor Alexis Deutsch-Adler, founder of “One Book, One City-Malibu.” The theme of the party was Roaring Twenties, modeled after author F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby,” the book that was chosen for this year’s “One Book” event in April.
