About the Event

Bookstore owner Mary Katharine and her longtime accomplice Marietta welcome you to Stone Soup Books for a bit of book talk and big creative adventure.  Leaving 1203 offers a look back at forever lessons the author relearned while  emptying her beloved-by-four-generations childhood home—and a clear  blueprint for our brighter futures.  Let’s bask in sunshine and toast  relationship, gratitude, humor, humility, generosity, simple pleasures.   Bring a significant object, one that especially touches you, as well as  your choice of pen, pencil, iPad—art supplies, old notebook, stationery  for writing a letter.  What speaks to your heart about that hat or  glove, this thimble or photograph?  Marietta offers up a dilapidated tennis ball and its herstory.  

You’re encouraged to bring food or drinks, a  favorite savored by those close to your hearts, and share the recipe.   Toss a trusty lawn chair in your trunk, if you like, as we’ll sit quite  near a peaceful children’s garden.  The cost of $25.00 includes Mary  Katharine’s tasty 1203 tidbits and a signed, happily personalized, copy  of Leaving 1203.  Our rain date is May 13 but the forecast is  always blue skies.
