Join us in store for a return of an annual holiday tradition at Mrs. Dalloway's - Thomas Lynch reading Truman Capote's classic A Christmas Memory. The event takes place on Thursday, December 8, at 5:30pm - reservations are not required.

First published in 1956, this much sought-after autobiographical recollection from Capote about his rural Alabama boyhood is a perfect gift for fans young and old, a "gem of a holiday story." (School Library Journal, starred review). 

Seven-year-old Buddy inaugurates the Christmas season by crying out to his cousin, Miss Sook Falk: "It's fruitcake weather!" Thus begins an unforgettable portrait of an odd but enduring friendship and the memories the two friends share of beloved holiday rituals. 

Performer Thomas Lynch is an actor and longtime resident of the Elmwood.

Authors Melanie Abrams and Larry Smith come to Mrs. Dalloway's to launch their new book The Joy of Cannabis: 75 Ways to Amplify Your Life Through the Science and Magic of Cannabis. It's a sophisticated and humorous cannabis book to enhance your life and promote self-care through the science and magic of weed.

With a toolkit of the basics to get you started and a curated set of 75 activities, The Joy of Cannabis is a road map to a higher and happier you. In it you'll find science-based research as well as charts, essays, and fun facts from bold thinkers. The activities--tested and approved by authors Melanie Abrams and Larry Smith--teach you how to amplify pleasure through bonding and intimacy, deepen meditation to help with social anxiety and sleep, and elevate your cooking with innovative cannabis-infused recipes. You'll even learn why the word marijuana rarely appears in the book.

From improving sleep and decreasing anxiety to promoting focus and making the ordinary extraordinary, recreational cannabis' time is now. Whether you purchase it as a self-care book for yourself or the men and women in your life or give it as a gift for a friend, get ready to experience the Golden Age of Cannabis. You're going to love it here.
