- Sept 21 – Booksigning by author Wendy Webb
Thursday • 4–7pm
At Cherry Street Books we will have an author here for the Thursday evening Girls’ Night Out event (4–7 PM). Wendy Webb has been at Cherry Street Books before and her books are always popular! Her newest novel is The End of Temperance Dare. Wendy writes tales with a bit of the paranormal / ghostly feel that are perfect for a fun read in the fall and we know you’ll enjoy meeting her! Earlier books we’ve enjoyed are The Tale of Halcyon Crane, The Fate of Mercy Alban and The Vanishing. We’ll have copies of all four of them on hand for you to see.

Be sure you make it to the play, too. I’ve seen it twice before and can’t wait to go again. It will be performed on October 12–15 and 19–22. Evening performances are at 7:30 and Sunday afternoon matinees are at 2 PM. Tickets are on sale now for this show at the Andria Theater in downtown Alexandria.
