Tuesday, May 10, 7pm : Marjorie Shepherd, author of Double Vision

Former Albemarle County teacher  Marjorie Shepherd has  penned an entertaining memoir that  dates from her childhood through her years as a teacher.  A storyteller at heart,  the author often shared stories from her life with her students, who might recognize some of what they hear at the reading! Please join us for what is sure to be an enjoyable evening!

Thursday, May 5, 6:30pm: Charlotte Matthews, author of Whistle What Can't Be Said


Local poet Charlotte Matthews has composed a deeply personal collection of  poems in Whistle What Can't Be Said. Written while the author underwent treatment for Stage 3 breast cancer at the age of 39, it is both a chronicle of that time and a reflection on childhood, loss, family, and extraordinary moments in ordinary life.

Second Saturdays

We hope you'll join us from 6pm - 8pm on the second Saturday of every other month, when we host a gallery opening reception, featuring our current artist! 

Through June 8, we'll be featuring the beautiful paintings of Susan Viemeister. Come spend some time with them!
