While our holiday event schedule is a bit more low-key, we've still got a lot of things going on this week.
Drew Magary, author of The Postmortal.
I've already written in detail about this dark and humorous apocalyptic novel about what happens when they find a cure for aging. The author is a well-known sports blogger.
Thursday, December 1, 7 pm, at the Katie Gingrass Gallery, 241 N. Broadway.
Fill the Shelves kickoff.
Buy a book at Gingrass Gallery and help the Milwaukee Public Library buy books most in need for the branches.
Friday, December 2, 4-8 pm
Boswell's Holiday Market and Festive Friday.
Angela has found several copacetic vendors to spread holiday cheer on Friday evening. The market will also repeat on Saturday, December 10 from 12 Noon to 4 pm.
Barbara Joosse, author of Dog Parade.
This adorable book featuring dogs in costume transitions well to the dog costume contest taking place outside Cafe Hollander. Ms. Joosse will help judge, if all things go smoothly.
Friday, December 2, 7 pm, at Boswell:
Erika Janik, author of Apple: A Global History.
Wisconsin Public Radio producer Janik offers a social and cultural history of la pomme. Ela's Orchards will have several varieties of apples on hand to purchase and yes, sample.
Now you might think that this is an event targeted mostly to parents and grandparents, and honestly, you'd be mostly right. But we always have some outsiders come to hear the kids read from their favorite works.
Sunday, December 4, 12-4 pm, at Lakefront Brewery
The Buy Local Holiday Gift Fair is upon us, sponsored by Local First Milwaukee and Outpost Natural Foods. And don't forget that DJ Dori Zori is spinning non-traditional holiday tunage. Here's a list of attending vendors.
