Friday, Feb 10th, 6:00 PM, Live Music & Dining – Connie Muscenti & Thomas Gunn, Celebrating Love in the Air, Italian Style

Reaching back to its ancient roots, Valentine’s Day Friday Evening at Stone Soup Books & Cafe will be traditional Italian and Old World European. Food, music, and atmosphere will weave the Valentine traditions into an unforgettable evening.

CONNIE MUSCENTI, on piano and concertina, and THOMAS GUNN, London-born multi-instrumentalist, have performed together in a variety of venues over the years.  For this special evening they promise a delightful, romantic mix of traditional Italian music and Old World melodies, along with some of Gunn’s original songs.  You might be surprised where the music takes us for the evening…. a rustic trattoria along the Amalfi coast, to a café in Eastern Europe or perhaps a discreet bistro in the heart of Paris.

What others are saying about “Scrapbooks of Secrets”:

“Mollie Bryan’s charming debut is a scrapbook of zany small town life with characters you’ll want to visit again and again in each new novel.” –Emilie Richards

An old fashioned mystery with some very modern twists. The intriguing characters, eerie happenings, and scrapbook of secrets kept me guessing ’til the end. It’s both warm and chilling, soothing and sinister. I can’t wait for the next installment!” -Clare O’Donohue

One of Stone Soup’s favorite duos returns.  Jace Goodling and Tim Scruby promise an evening of  “high energy” old-time fiddle and banjo.  Noted for their musical inventiveness and humorous repartee, The Red Drum Ramblers defy the listener to keep feet from moving, fingers from snapping, and hands from clapping.  Sometimes these Ramblers invite listeners to join them in a “sing-a-long.”

Tues, Feb 21st, 7:00 PM, “Winter Mystery Series” Book Discussion of  “The Beekeeper’s Apprentice” by Laurie King

Curl up with a good book this winter – Join us for our Winter Mystery Series  with Laurie King’s  ” The Apprentice Beekeeper. Chosen as 1 of the 100 favorite mysteries of the 20th century by the Independent Mystery Bookseller’s Association, this first in the series is one you don’t want to miss! In 1915, long since retired from his observations of criminal humanity, Sherlock Holmes is engaged in a reclusive study of honeybee behavior on the Sussex Downs. Never did he think to meet an intellect to match his own–until his acquaintance with Miss Mary Russell, a very modern fifteen-year-old whose mental acuity is equaled only by her audacity, tenacity, and penchant for trousers and cloth caps.

Book Discussion is Free and open to all ages. Books are available at Stone Soup Books. Stone Soup Books and Café, 908 W. Main St., Waynesboro 540-943-0084, www.stonesoupbooks.net
