Posted by on Sep 25, 2018 in family, festival, In The News | 0 comments

The Book Garden is falling back into autumn with a colorful array of author and lit-themed events. Join us for a conversation with special guest acclaimed author Jonathan Miles about his new novel, Anatomy of a Miracle on Tuesday, Oct. 9th at 7pm during Evening Reads Book Club. Find out the inspiration for this incredible story and chat with one of our favorite authors. And we aren’t the only ones who love him. Check out this review in the LA Review of Books. RSVP for this event is highly recommended as space is limited. Go on a spiritual journey of a different kind with author Sarada Chiruvolu when she visits on Saturday, Oct 13th to discuss her new book, Home at Last. “I felt as though it was preordained and was in a sense imposed on me; a journey meant to be completed because it was my time to pursue it. The book explains how I reached that state without relinquishing the life I was given; having a family, a career, and an active social life with all the responsibilities inherent in those roles….” Come learn more and share your stories of self-discovery at 3pm on October 13th. Frenchtown area writers – both published and aspiring-to-be-published are invited to join in the first Wine-n-Chat Frenchtown Writers gathering on Thursday, Oct. 18 from 7pm to 9ish. Wine and other refreshments will be served and a donation of $5 is requested to defray refreshment costs. Come meet, mingle and be inspired and reassured that the life of a writer is a life worth pursuing. Red Dashboard poets will share their work on Sunday, Oct. 21st from 2pm to 4pm. Featured poets will be Ryan Torres, reading from his new collection, Barry Gross and Kate Nardone. Last but not least, The Book Garden is excited to announce our first ever Haunted Garden brought to you by the Frenchtown Fright Club. Doors will open at 5pm on Tuesday, Oct. 30th. Children of all ages (and brave adults) are invited to come be part of the fun. There is no cost and we promise a few screams, some laughter and surprises.

The annual Frenchtown ZOMBIE CRAWL takes place on Saturday, Oct. 22nd. The Crawl begins at 4:30pm and zombies can scavenger hunt your way through town in search brains…and then shamble back to Sunbeam Park for prizes and a dance with the dead. Zombie make-up experts will be on hand at Sunbeam Park from 1pm to 4pm (cost $5 per person). Zombies can start their day early in Frenchtown and then crawl their way down river to New Hope for the New Hope Crawl starting at 6:30pm. This year zombies won’t be the only creatures stalking Frenchtown. Martians feed on the waves of fear emitted by humans so, what better way for them to enjoy a feast? Simple! They land in Frenchtown once the zombies have scared the bejeebers out of everyone. You too can experience the Martian invasion if you head down to Frenchtown and listen in as The Book Garden’s very own River Town Radio Theatre presents LIVE: ‘War of the Worlds’ at Frenchtown Elementary School. Join in this historical reenactment of the invasion we all remember oh so well. The War of the Worlds radio theater performance will be presented Saturday October 22 at 7:00 p.m. at Frenchtown Elementary School located at 902 Harrison Street. A donation of $5 per person will offset the production costs. Call The Book Garden at 908-996-2022 or email contact@bookgarden.biz to reserve your seats.

He goes to the school cafeteria only to be served “a hunk of meat loaf” that “looked an awful lot like brains.” Hear more when author Joe McGee joins us for an afternoon of spooky fun on Oct. 23rd at...
