My friend Meighan O’Toole of Stuff! Consignments in Gainesville has started a fun new series of events called Extra Stuff! and this coming Wednesday, September 19th, yours truly is the extra stuff. She’s hosting Ladies’ Night at Club Eclipse Restaurant (also in Gainesville) and I hope you’ll join me for it.
There’ll be food and drink specials (i.e. wine!), and I’m supposed to say a word or two. I’m also supposed to do that prior to enjoying a drink special but, well, we’ll see how that goes. (You want me to be thisclose to wine and deny myself some? What kind of savage are you???)
Call (ok, text) your friends and put Wednesday on your calendar. Meighan and Jason Flis, the owner of Club Eclipse, do so much to support our community and in this case they’re throwing their support behind Girls’ Night Out. Yes, that’s a cause. And it’s cause to kick up your heels (or just take the damn things off) and catch up with your girlfriends for a few hours. I hope you’ll join me!
Wednesday, September 19th, 7pm
Club Eclipse Restaurant, 5615 Wellington Road, Gainesville/703-508-9399
(And for your shopping pleasure prior to Ladies’ Night, hit Stuff! Consignments at 7482 Limestone Drive, Gainesville/703-753-2330)
If you’re free Friday night (October 23rd), join me — and 24 terrific local authors — for “Great Writers, Right Here.”
We’ll be in the John Barton Payne Building at 2 Courthouse Square, Warrenton, so stop in and do some shopping before you go out to dinner!
- Drop in any time 6-8 p.m. to browse our booths.
- Meet and talk with us. We love that.
- Books will be available for purchase, so shop for yourself or someone you love. A book signed by its author makes the best gift.
- Door prizes will be awarded every 30 minutes.
Hope to see you there!
The event scheduled for today at The Griffin Bookshop & Coffee Bar in Fredericksburg, VA has been rescheduled for Sat. Dec. 21st, 2-4pm. Why? Because the books ordered for today’s signing have almost completely sold out!
They’ll order more and I’ll be at the shop in two weeks. Come on out for some last minute holiday shopping, a piping hot beverage, and a signed book. They make great gifts. 🙂
This coming Saturday, December 7th, I’ll be signing copies of 500 Acres and No Place to Hide at The Griffin Bookshop & Coffee Bar in Fredericksburg, VA. Ever been there? It’s incredible.
Cozy, yummy, and smack in the middle of boutique and fabulous-shop-filled Caroline Street. Can you say “finish your Christmas list“? I sure can.
I’ll be at The Griffin (723 Caroline Street, 540-899-8041) from 2-4pm. After that, I’ll be out playing Santa. Shhhhh. Don’t tell Chris!
