Join Susan Ritz to celebrate the publication of her debut novel, "A Dream to Die For," "an original and compelling murder mystery that will keep you up late turning pages as you’re sucked into a world of dreams and dreamers, mystics and bartenders, artists and cops," says Jennifer McMahon.
Reading, Book Signing, Cake and Refreshments. Free and open to the public.
Join us Tuesday, June 18 at Cafe Renee (right next to the Coolidge Hotel) to celebrate the release of Memories Unleashed: Vietnam Legacy, a new book by hometown author Carl R. Small. Carl’s reading will be followed by a free “prompt” workshop, where everyone is invited to write and share.
The reading starts at 6:30, but come early because Cafe Renee will be serving up light fare and its usual homey, European vibe. Bring something to write on/with. Bring a friend. (Heads up, space is limited.)
Please join Ann Dávila Cardinal in celebrating the release of her new novel, Five Midnights (Tor Teen, 2019). There will be Latin music, salsa dancing, and Puerto Rican appetizers from Café Anna at Vermont College of Fine Arts. There will be a short reading from the novel, and Bear Pond Books will be on hand with copies for sale.
Cash bar offering special El Cuco Mojitos.
This is a free, family-friendly event!
