Mingle with fellow book-lovers in the library stacks; engage in conversation with local authors; sip on wine varietals provided by The Wine Bin in historic Ellicott City; savor gourmet cheeses and desserts; listen to jazz guitarist Bob Margolis. Itâ€™s all happening at the 6th annual author reception to benefit the Catonsville Library.
The Friends of the Catonsville Library will host â€œWords & Wineâ€ on Friday, October 14 from 7 to 9 p.m. More than a dozen authors from the area will share their work and have books available for sale and signing. Featured authors include Michael Collier, Louis Diggs, Tom Flynn, James MagGruder, Madeleine Mysko, and Eric and Nataliya Goodman.
These authors will be happy to chat with you, and to sell and sign copies of their books.Â Tracks:Â A Novel in Stories and Flightless Goose will both be available.
Tickets to this popular event are $25 and will be available at the Catonsville Library (1100 Frederick Road, Catonsville) or at the door. This yearâ€™s proceeds will be used to conserve historic documents in the Catonsville Room.
Take a look at the poster to learn more about the event.Â Hope to see you there!
