Author's Luncheon and Book Signing at Stone Soup

AUTHOR'S LUNCHEON AND BOOK SIGNINGSaturday, March 22, 2014, Noon - 2:30 p.m. Stone Soup Books Waynesboro, VA

Marietta teams up with Stone Soup Books for lunch, laughter, and philosophizing in the charming atmosphere of this cafe/bookshop. Marietta will join diners as she rotates among three tables, circling from noon to 1:30 p.m. While the regular menu will be available, Chef Laura will prepare specialties to complement Burmese cuisine from Vegetable Curry to Mango Tart with Coconut Crust. Burma is the setting for the March chapter in The Philosopher's Table titled "Persistence and Grace." The lunch bell rings for $10 and includes lunch entree, dessert of the day, coffee or tea and lively discussion. Reservations for lunch are recommended due to limited seating. From 1:30-2:30 p.m., Marietta will sign books while chatting with her lunch dates as well as members of the community arriving after lunch. In addition to The Philosopher's Table, Stone Soup will also have Marietta's first two books for sale - Little Big Minds: Sharing Philosophy with Kids (a New York Times Extended List bestseller) and How Philosophy can Save Your Life: 10 Ideas That Matter Most (winner of a Nautilus Book Award).
