"...unique experiences designed around local restaurants, exceptional authors, and sometimes both at the same time. Each menu will reflect a special pairing..."

This evening pairs Denise Kiernan's The Last Castle with a delicious dinner designed and prepared by Joe and Heidi Trull of Grits and Groceries.

"Heidi will be drawing on her old-school sense of Southern opulence to craft a menu that reflects the time and place of the book. We can’t think of a match that sounds like more fun than this one." —M. Judson Booksellers  

Ticketed event. A copy of The Last Castle is included in your ticket.
