Macca's Wine Bar will be open during the dinner hour, 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., with a wonderful selection of wines for sale by the glass. The reading will begin at 7:00 p.m., with book sales and signing to follow. Dessert will be for sale during the event. We'd like to thank our September dessert sponsor Starbucks.

The Bad Actors are a progressive, bluegrass guitar duo made up of Doug Bremseth and Bruce Honeyman. Duet singing and hot guitar work are their specialty, acting is not -- which is why they're playing music!
