We will be serving coffee, mimosas and croissants starting at 9:30 am on our patio adjacent to the PPB door at the corner of Wesley and Scott.
Our five buyers have each picked their top three all-time favorite books, we will be giving away a copy of each buyer's favorite book (We will announce winners later in the day here on the website and contact by phone).
We also want to hear from you about your all-time favorite books. Wheaton author Jennifer Grant will be dropping by to join in our discussion of favorite books and will present a reading from one of her own books at 11 am.
This is a free event. Please register in advance so we can plan.
In the afternoon, we will welcome French chef, Jean True who will be leading a cooking demo from the book, French Comfort Food (Please visit our Events page to purchase tickets for this event)
Let PPB help make Mother's Day shopping easy with our Mother's Day Book Bundle. This bundle includes two hardcover books that are at the top of many best seller lists these days - The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo and The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins and one classic paperback cookbook that is chocked full of delicious cake recipes - Cake Keeper Cakes by Lauren Chattman. We will bundle these three books and beautifully gift wrap it all for the price of $60 plus tax. If Mom already has any of these books we will gladly exchange for a same-priced book.
We are offering three PPB Mother's Day Gift Idea Events - Sign Mom up for just one event or save $5 and sign her up for all three.
Registration for these events is available on our Events Page.
* These events would make a great gift for Mom, however you don't have to be a Mom to attend!
We invite you to drop by and check out our new reading room. It is a lovely, comfortable spot to read by yourself or a place to catch up with a friend. It's also available to reserve for a group event, free of charge.
Looking for a place for your next book club or Bible study? It is available whenever the store is open. Contact us in advance at email@example.com to reserve your meeting. You are always welcome to bring in food and drinks.
