books & brunch


Welcome to Books & Brunch:

While working with a few authors I discovered there is an amazing experience between authors and their readers. Upon this discovery, I wanted to create a space where authors and readers could meet, connect and share. So I decided to create an event specifically for this purpose and she calls the event Books & Brunch. Books & Brunch is presented by Beyond the Bookshelf and the premiere event takes place Sunday May 19th, featuring Best Selling Author Norma Jarrett. Hope you can join us!
