Join us Thursday evening, December 8, for our Christmas Bookfest – book signings at The Sparta Store.
Authors Kate Clay Bodeen (NCSH Award Winner Pat Crisp, Like a Moth to the Flame) and Dr. Suzanne Mellow Irwin (The Stratford Oaks Tales), as well as illustrator Zach Hamm (The Stratford Oaks Tales) will be here from 3:00 till 6:00 that afternoon. A representative from High Country Hospice will also have copies of their award-winning cookbook, Meals and Memories, available.
In addition to having your book signed, you’ll have a chance to learn about their upcoming projects.
Also, you’ll be able to check out the latest release from Star Route Books, Regimental History of the 61st NC Infantry. This is the second in our popular history book series and others are planned for release next year.
We’ll also have some edible treats. The Alleghany Historical Museum is hosting a Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours event and is planning to have goodies for everyone. Alleghany County Library is co-hosting the event.
Our neighboring shops on Main Street will also have extended hours December 8. Be sure to stop by Backwoods Bean, Murphy’s Mercantile, and Studio Redwood that evening and support our local merchants and businesses.
