Laurie Beach, Christmas in Crickley Creek
Join us for Christmas in early November, as beloved local author Laurie Beach introduces Christmas in Crickley Creek on Saturday, 4 November 2023 at 9:30 AM. We loved the first 2 installments of her Crickley Creek stories and can't wait to read what happens next. We'll have complimentary coffee, holiday pastries, and sweet tea (of course!).
Emma Shea Abernathy is fully aware of her social role: marry well, live extravagantly, and, most of all, exhibit perfection. And it started with saying "I do" to future governor Trent Broadway.
With her carefully crafted life in full swing, she knows she's made a big mistake. Leaving it all behind, she hides out at her great-grandmother's beach house in Crickley Creek. There, she discovers a secret room containing a well-preserved 1920s Prohibition speakeasy-and some surprising information about the women in her family. This leads to a new plan: to become a woman who acts contrary to what is expected. In other words, a Firefly Girl.
The event is free, but please let us know that you're coming by calling the shop at 925-837-7337 so we have enough treats!
