An Evening with NY Times Best-selling Author KELLY CORRIGAN  – Join us on Friday, March 20 at 7 pm

trade paperback cover

Kelly Corrigan won an avid following from critics, readers, and booksellers for her finely wrought and deeply emotional memoirs about how we connect to the people in our lives. Corrigan introduced us to her father, the lively and optimistic Greenie, in The Middle Place and explored the often-turbulent air around parenthood in Lift. In her New York Times bestselling hardcover from earlier this year, she examined the bond—sometimes nourishing, sometimes exasperating, occasionally divine—between mothers and daughters in GLITTER AND GLUE.  Reading a book by Kelly Corrigan is like having a heart-to-heart with your smartest, funniest confidante.  Hearing her read from and talk about the book in person guarantees an unforgettable experience.  Join us on Friday, March 20 at 7 pm for an evening with Kelly, as she celebrates the paperback release of Glitter and Glue. Registration for this fantastic evening includes:  Wine and hors d’oeuvres, Live music presented by local jazz group, Pomona’s Trio (Lisa Cadigan, vocals; Bret Crawford, saxophone; Marc Jalbert, guitar),  a presentation by the engaging Kelly Corrigan, a paperback copy of Glitter and Glue and an opportunity to have the author sign your book.

KCBS BBQ Judging Class & Table Captain Class – March 28, 2015  – 9:00 am – 1:00 pm


KCBS teams are known for cooking some of the best barbeque in the world, but it takes a dedicated team of judges to decide which is truly the best-of-the-best. Being a Certified Barbeque Judge (CBJ) means more than just getting to taste award-winning barbeque – and deciding which barbeque wins those awards. It’s about representing and spreading the message of KCBS, which is to promote America’s cuisine – barbeque.  To become a CBJ, just attend one of the hundreds of classes conducted by KCBS every year throughout the country. In a half-day’s time, you’ll learn how to grade world-class chicken, pulled pork, ribs and brisket – and taste them during the process!   By the time you’re finished, you’ll be ready to sign up for the next competition in your area!  And remember: your CBJ fee also includes one year’s membership to KCBS. It’s a win-win!
