June 15, 2024 - Grand Opening

If you thought our first grand opening was epic, prepare yourselves. We have so much planned for you guys on June 15! Here is a sneak peek:

10-11am Friendship Bracelet Making (no limit, tickets will be available on this page. $15)

11am-12pm Romance Bookish Trivia (with Prizes!) (no limit, cost is per person but we'll divide into teams for the event. $10)

1-2pm Marrying Mr. Darcy (limited to 12, $10) - It is a truth universally acknowledged that lovers of Pride and Prejudice want to marry Mr. Darcy. Marrying Mr. Darcy is a strategy card game where players are one of the female characters from Jane Austen’s novel, Pride and Prejudice. Players work to improve themselves and attract the attention of the available Suitors. The ladies do this by attending Events and improving their Characters, but advantage can be gained by the use of Cunning. All of their efforts are in hopes of marrying well and becoming the most satisfied character at the end of the game! (30-60 minutes, 2 games will be running concurrently.)

2-3pm Bookish Cookie Decorating (limited to 15, tickets will be available on this page. Price $25) - Decorate 3 Bookish-themed cookies! Cost covers everything you need to decorate your cookies, as well as being able to take the finished product home with you! Well, if they make it home. They're pretty delicious, so we wouldn't blame you for eating them while you browse!

3-5pm Mini Bookshelf Painting (limited to 15, tickets available offsite so you can select your materials options. $35-45) - Create a custom miniature bookshelf! Choose your design and have a fun-filled evening of painting, assembling, and filling your bookshelf! Michelle Byrd of Byrdhouse Designs will guide you through painting and putting together your bookshelf and the mini books. Afterward, you'll fill the bookshelf with the mini faux books and your choice from Michelle's selection of miniatures. Transform your mini bookshelf into a personal work of art! Please Note: Ticket Sales for this event will end one week prior to allow for preparing materials. Purchase Tickets Here

6-8 pm Author Event with Gwenda Bond, Lauren Kung Jessen, and Mazey Eddings (Limited tickets available. $25) - Join these three incredible authors as they talk about the romance community, their books, and the genre, in general. We are so excited to be in conversation with each of them! Ticket will include one of their books of your choosing.
