Once again, it’s time to gather together at Eric and Tess’s spacious shop to socialize, share a fireside meal, and hold our Annual Meeting. In addition to the thousands of books and other items on display and for sale, Larry Rakow will present an authentic 19th century magic lantern show featuring an early set of Alice in Wonderland slides, accompanied by an original script. The show features an authentic double-lensed projector, and both hand-drawn and photographic slides, along with Larry’s dramatic commentary.

The meal will be buffet style, provided by Boston Market, with your choice of rotisserie chicken, meatloaf, or a grilled vegetable (vegetarian) sandwich box lunch. Available side dishes will include mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans, and sweet corn. Cake will conclude the meal and beverages will be provided. The cost is $20 per person. We hope to see you there!
