Books Over Drinks with Viola Shipman
Jul 14 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
M. Judson Booksellers

We are so excited to spend an evening with Viola Shipman talking over her book The Edge of Summer. What better way to do it than over a couple of cocktails??

Reminiscent of the complex, uplifting family stories by Nancy Thayer, Sunny Hostin and Mary Alice Monroe, Viola Shipman’s poignant new novel explores the relationship between a curious woman and her secretive mother, taking readers from their hardscrabble life in the Ozarks to her search for answers along the sparkling shores of Lake Michigan.

Your ticket includes admission, a cocktail, and a copy of the book!

Lunch & Lit with Katherine Center

Soby's

Join us for Lunch & Lit with Katherine Center and her book, The Bodyguard.

Called “My perfect 10 of a book,” by the rom-com-queen Emily Henry, this is the summer read you’ve been waiting for! He’s a major celebrity with secrets and a stalker; she’s a bodyguard that looks more like a kindergarten teacher. When he has to go home, but doesn’t want to raise suspicion, his bodyguard has to play girlfriend… what could possibly go wrong? Like Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynold’s film The Proposal, this story is fun, flirty, and hilarious. Don’t miss this lunch to talk about it; it’s going to be an utter delight.
