- April 29 – Booksigning by author Beth Hill
SATURDAY • 1–2:30PM
On Saturday April 29th, we will host a book signing by Beth Hill. An Alexandria native, Beth now lives in the Metro area with her husband and children. She has written a novel called A Letter an Ex and Opal and we hope you will join us in congratulating her on this achievement! A short description of the book reads: “Lucy has finally freed herself from a disappointing marriage. She’s more than ready to make a fresh start and to discover just who she really is. An unexpected letter arrives, opening the door to opportunity and adventure.” Please stop in on the 29th to greet Beth and take a look at her book. She’ll be here from 1 – 2:30 PM.
- May 6 – Puppet Making Workshop
SATURDAY • 11AM
In celebration of Children’s Book Week, we will sponsor a puppet making workshop on Saturday May 6th at 11AM.
Children ages 3–10 are invited. The workshop will be presented by Jim Black, a song-writer and puppeteer. He was at one time a writer and puppeteer for a children’s TV show called “Quigley’s Village”. Now living in Alexandria with his wife and children, Black is the new pastor at Catalyst Covenant Church.
This is sure to be lots of fun; we hope you’ll bring your kids and grandkids!
