Tickets are $70 and Include delicious food prepared by our Dames and two beverage tickets. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.

As of the writing of this missive, we still have good stock on bunnies from Jellycats and rabbit squishies for those Easter baskets.

Tickets are available for the event with Cecile Richards on Sunday, April 15th at 2pm. Her event at McIntyre’s will be her only appearance in North Carolina on her national tour for her memoir, Make Trouble. Call the bookstore to reserve your spot — 919.542.3030.

We have another literary luncheon coming up with Paula McLain on Wednesday, May 23rd at noon. You are probably familiar with Ms. McLain’s novels, Circling the Sun, The Paris Wife, and A Ticket to Ride. Her latest novel is Love and Ruin and picks up the story of Martha Gellhorn, the sparkplug journalist ahead of her time who was Ernest Hemingway’s third wife.
