Why should grown-ups have all the foodie fun? We’ve decided to extend our eat-and-read schemes to the parent-child set, and so planned our first Sit-Down event for middle grade kids. Join us Sunday February 26th for a very special brunch in honor of sisters Kate and Cassie Beasley, both of whom have recently published their first novels for readers 8-12 years old. Circus Mirandus, by Cassie Beasley, is the story of a young man’s quest to get the miracle promised to his dying grandfather from a mythical circus magician. And Gertie’s Leap to Greatness, by Kate Beasley, brings us the spunky Gertie Reece Foy, this generation’s Ramona Quimby. We’ll have the chance to hear from each of the authors about their books, their writing experiences, and what it’s like to grow up in a family of authors.
Tickets and books come in pairs; $60 gets one parent and one child a seat at the table for a three-course, book-inspired meal, a glass of bubbly for the grown ups, and one copy of each of the novels.
