Sit Down Supper with Chris Pavone
May 22 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
M. Judson Booksellers

Join us for a dinner party you’ll never forget! On Sunday, May 22nd, we’ll be hosting author Chris Pavone in celebration of his novel Two Nights in Lisbon. Starting with a welcome cocktail, we’ll spend an evening with Chris enjoying a four course meal prepared by Chef Teryi Musolf, all staged in the bookstore itself.

One of the most wonderful things we do here at the bookstore is our Sunday Sit Down Supper series, where we invite a great writer to talk about their work and a local chef to plan a menu inspired by it. After hours, we transform the bookstore with long tables and family china, wine and conversation, books and inspiration. If you haven’t joined us for one of these evenings before, now is the time.

We’re excited to pair Chris’s riveting thriller about putting everything on the line with a delicious meal and lively conversation between the shelves. The perfect date night, gift, or night on the town, tickets include your cocktail, dinner, evening with Chris, signed copy of his book, and gratuity.
