MARCH 26, 2023: IN STORE EVENT WITH WINSOME BINGHAM, 1:00- 3:00 PM
VaHi Books welcomes Winsome Bingham, author of Soul Food Sunday, to the store for a book signing on March 26 from 1:00-3:00. At Granny’s, Sunday isn’t Sunday without a big family gathering over a lovingly prepared meal. Old enough now, our narrator is finally invited to help cook the dishes for the first time: He joins Granny in grating the cheese, cleaning the greens, and priming the meat for Roscoe Ray’s grill. But just when Granny says they’re finished, her grandson makes his own contribution, sweetening this Sunday gathering—and the many more to come. Evocatively written and vividly illustrated, this mouthwatering story is a warm celebration of tradition and coming together at a table filled with love and delicious food.
MARCH 29 THROUGH APRIL 23: TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS AT THEATRICAL OUTFIT
Based on the New York Times bestselling book by Cheryl Strayed (author of Wild) and adapted by Academy Award nominee Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), Tiny Beautiful Things explores Strayed’s time as the anonymous, unpaid, advice columnist Dear Sugar. While strangers on the internet tell her their most personal secrets (which they are terrified to even share with their own families), Strayed weaves together her own personal experiences to create a column full of light, laughter, and humanity. Tiny Beautiful Things is “A Theatrical Hug In Turbulent Times”. Tiny Beautiful Things will be onstage at Theatrical Outfit from March 29 through April 23.
