This week at Barnhills

Whew, it’s been a busy few weeks which is why I haven’t posted in a while.  Our 1st Anniversary celebration was awesome!!!!  Thanks to all the vineyards who participated and congrats to all who won prizes.

Last week we had Mary Noble Jones in doing a children’s reading from her Itsy Rabbit series (she will be back on May 5th at 4pm). Shadowfax Sound played here on Friday – they were awesome as usual.  Saturday Kathryn Fisher was here reading from and signing copies of her books Up A Tree with Tattie Wee (a memoir) and One Forgotten Summer (fiction).  Check out FB and our YouTube account to see her reading soon.  Sunday, T.L. Bailey was here reading from her second book, Island of Lost Guardians.

This coming week will be just as busy.  On  Friday, WestBend Vineyard will be here offering FREE tastings of their Riesling, Chambourcin and Carolina Blush.  They will also be bringing a cake made with the Riesling and the recipe!!!

On Saturday, local children’s author, Linda Greene Dean, will be here at 11am to read from her book – Wally Rooster’s Big Move.  A charming story about moving and making new friends.

Also on Saturday, Anna Jean Mayhew will be here reading from and signing copies of her debut novel, The Dry Grass of August.  A beautifully written book about complicated family relationships set int eh south in the 1950’s.

Then on Sunday, local cookbook author, Elizabeth Wiegand, will be here with her latest book, The New Blue Ridge Cookbook (reviewed by Michael Hastings in the WS Journal).  She will also be bringing samples of some of the recipes.

As you can see the upcoming week has a little something going on for everyone in the family, so stop by soon & check us out.
