More Events, More Books, More Connections!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Our sincere best wishes for a healthy and happy Mother’s Day today. Looks like the weather will offer plenty of time for outdoor fun, even if it’s just to settle in for a peaceful day of sweet tea and reading on the porch.

We have four, count ’em four, virtual events this week (read on below and look for more to be announced for next week including local favorite Mary Alice Monroe). So settle back, enjoy our recommendations and this beautiful day, and we look forward to seeing you soon on Main Street…
