Holidays a happening good time at Booklovers’ Gourmet
Carlo Morrissey chats with customers of Booklovers’ Gourmet prior to his talk about his latest novel, “In a Borrowed Suit,” on December 3rd. Mr. Morrissey has also written such works as “Lavender Skies,” “If You See Your Father, Shoot Him” and “I am the Moon.”
No time of year is more special at Booklovers’ Gourmet, 72 E. Main St. in Webster, than the month of December. Which is why Owner Deb Horan is offering extended holiday hours. The store will be open from noon to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 18 and from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Monday, December 19th.
Booklovers’ Gourmet will close at 4:00 p.m. on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.
“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!” Ms. Horan says of the strong show of support for Plaid Friday and Small Business Saturday. “We couldn’t be any more grateful to see so many new and familiar smiling faces.”
Winners in the store’s raffle were Maria Perry and Betty O’Connor for $25 gift cards, Amy Angell and Destiny Bolduc for T-shirts, Chris Joiner and Sophia Ciuitenga for linen calendars and Faythe Millhoff for a tote bag.
Booklovers’ December art exhibit, “Walking Through the Woods on a Foggy Day in December”—photographs by Bettie Carlson--continues throughout the month.
Local Author Carol Morrissey made an appearance at the store on December 3rd to talk about and sign his new novel “In a Borrowed Suit.” The main character’s lament “nothing is ever easy! Something always goes wrong?” follows “Raymond Rosemont” as the unassuming, socially awkward, middle-aged loner bumbles his way through one absurd episode after another.
The flurry of activity at Booklovers’ included an “Eat, Drink and Be Merry” gathering of the Webster Dudley Business Alliance on December 6th; and a “Scars to Stars Vol. 2: Stories of Vulnerability, Resilience and Overcoming Adversity” Book Launch with contributing author Bil Gardiner on December 10th.
A Holiday Pop-Up Book Fair will be held on Saturday, December 17th from noon to 4:00 p.m., with author appearances, books from different genres and giveaways.
