Words & Music: Third Thursday!

Our favorite Thursday each month is here – Third Thursday, when downtown Summerville becomes one fabulous giant block party! Tonight’s Third Thursday also marks the beginning of Summerville’s 17th birthday celebration, and Saturday’s music festival, Concert 175!

These are all FREE and accessible events – we welcome you to come on out and meet the neighbors, grab some great food (and a book or two) and enjoy the coolest downtown anywhere – after all, we’re sweet on Summerville and let’s face it – it’s always a little SWEETER here! #keepitsummerville

Thanks Mary Alice and Angela!

Always good to see author buddies in Summerville and what a delight it was to coordinate with the Timrod Library for a wonderful author talk and book-signing Sunday.

As always, we made sure to have these New York Times best-selling powerhouses sign plenty of books before they escaped – grab yours at the store soon (as many as we had ’em sign – they won’t last long!)

Okay – the upcoming events are listed below and we’ll be announcing more VERY SPECIAL events soon, so watch for upcoming appearances by Chris Singleton, Kimberly Brock and more… and July book clubs featuring The Bloomsbury Girls, Ravaged, and Ruby Falls… it’s going to be an amazing summer!
