WFDD presents Brendan and Rico from
The Dinner Party Download  

Saturday, December 16 at 6:30 p.m.
SECCA, 750 Marguerite Drive, Winston-Salem

Brendan Francis Newnam and Rico Gagliano, hosts of The Dinner Party Download, are coming back to the Triad for a special event to talk about their new book Brunch is Hell: A Dinner Party Primer! Mix and mingle with Brendan, Rico, the staff of 88.5 WFDD, and other public radio fans and supporters. They’ll have hors d’oeuvres from Alma Mexicana, a signature cocktail from mixologist Tim Nolan, and most importantly, tips and etiquette from Brendan and Rico themselves. They’ll also sign copies of their new book, Brunch is Hell: How to Save the World By Throwing a Dinner Party, which Bookmarks will have on hand. Tickets required. Look for the option to buy a book with your ticket to save $ off the retail price.

A Dickens of a Year  

Sunday, December 17 from 12:00 noon to 8:00 p.m.
Bookmarks, 634 West Fourth Street #110, Winston-Salem, NC

Bookmarks invites the community to join us as we celebrate the end of our thirteenth year with extended hours and programming, which will culminate with a dramatic reading of The Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge, written by Charlie Lovett, former Bookmarks Board President and New York Times bestselling author (A Bookman’s Tale, The Lost Book of the Grail) at 6:30 pm. The book is a delightful sequel to Dickens's beloved A Christmas Carol, set 20 years after Scrooge was famously converted to kindness by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Throughout the day, there will be a Silent Auction and Raffle which will include items donated by friends of Bookmarks and local businesses. Raffle tickets can be purchased for $2 each or 3 for $5 from Bookmarks on Sunday any time between noon and 6:30 p.m. Both the silent auction and the raffle will end immediately prior to the dramatic reading. All winners will be announced following the reading at approximately 7:30 p.m. You do not need to be present to win. All proceeds benefit Bookmarks and its mission.
