I hope everyone had a great long holiday weekend. Above is the 40-pound turkey we had for Thanksgiving. I didn't know turkeys came that big. I only just woke up yesterday from all the tryptophan. Many thanks to the Ms for being the hosts with the mosts.
Now that the holiday shopping season is officially upon us, here are a few local holiday-themed events coming up where I'll be signing books:
Concord Museum, Monday, 12/1, 5:30-7:30pm: That's tonight, folks. The Concord Museum is opening up its gift shop to give you first dibs on their unique selection of gifts, including jewelry, ornaments, books, and accessories. Refreshments will be served, and I'll be signing books and serving samples from WINTERSWEET. Gift-wrapping is included.
Well Within Holiday Sip & Shop, Sunday, 12/7, 7pm: For folks in Newton and the surrounding area, come support local women in business at Well Within's holiday shopping fête. For sale will be massage gift certificates, handmade soaps and candles, Stella & Dot jewelry and accessories, Indian-spiced chocolates, prints by local photographer Rachael DuMoulin, and signed copies of WINTERSWEET by a certain local author. Enjoy lots of tasty treats and raffle prizes, too. Conveniently located near the Newtonville Whole Foods. For more information, click here.
Tower Hill Botanic Garden, Wednesday, 12/10, 6-7:30pm: Worcester peeps, come on out for a pie-making demonstration by you-know-who with a very special guest assistant, my dad. You'll also have the chance to wander around the beautiful indoor conservatories and outdoor winter gardens lit up with 12 miles of lights, as well as do some holiday shopping in their lovely gift shop. If you've never been to Tower Hill, it's amazing in all seasons. The pie-making demo is included with the price of admission. For more information, click here.
Make a dent in your holiday shopping while simultaneously supporting the work of these great local institutions preserving history, art, and horticulture. Thanks!
