Giggleswick: The Amadan MapAuthor pens adventure for middle-grade readers

In local author Matthew Mainster's adventurous story for middle grade readers, a small country in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean is hidden from the rest of the world by a circle of unnavigable fog. It's called Giggleswick, and an unusual man approaches twelve-year-old Elliot Bisby and his family and asks them to move there.

Before they know it, the struggling Bisby family finds themselves on a tiny boat captained by a man who prefers a singing parrot to a compass, and they soon embark on a journey that no other seaman could make and live to tell about.

Find out more about Giggleswick: The Amadan Map online and meet the author for a book signing at Greetings & Readings on Saturday, June 9 from 1 to 3 p.m.
Baltimore BeerLocal expert explores Baltimore beer

Local author and reporter Rob Kasper visits Greetings & Readings for a book signing on the day before Father's Day, Saturday, June 16 from 1 to 3 p.m.

Since Mary Pickersgill sewed Old Glory on the floor of a local brewery, Baltimore has been a beer-drinking town. Baltimore beer scholar and journalist Rob Kasper traces the sudsy story from the days when alehouses lined the Jones Falls to the tales behind the current crop of local brewers who are fermenting a craft brew revival. Join Kasper as he uses interviews, stunning vintage images and a few recipes to pop the cap on Charm City's brewing history.

Meet local artisan Bryan Bornfriend, discover new line of fine, gift pens

Bryan Bornfriend Trunk ShowOn Saturday, June 16 from 1 to 3 p.m., just in time for Father's Day, Jarrettsville artisan Bryan Scott Bornfriend visits Greetings & Readings to introduce shoppers to his line of hand-crafted, locally-made fine gift pens.

Enjoy his work at the Bryan Bornfriend Trunk Show; from materials such as mahogany, Bethlehem olive wood, cholla cactus, brass and cherry wood, Bornfriend crafts these pens by hand in his Jarrettsville, Maryland workshop.

"I've taken notice of the value of quality and strength of construction in a truly hand-made product," said Bornfriend. "Unlike an off-the-rack ball point, a hand-made pen makes a statement about commitment and attention to detail."
This weekend's shopping kicks off with the Friday Night Concert Series, but there's plenty more to discover at Greetings & Readings. Find lots more ideas at our website and we'll see you soon!
