Please mark your calendars to attend one of our exciting “Reading at the Orchard” events. Our book readings sprang from the desire to help our own Fennville Elementary School get an ambitious fundraiser called National Book Trust started last year. This program directly benefits young students in our own community by giving books to them to take home and keep. Here at Crane’s Pie Pantry, we feel there is no better way to promote reading than to hold a fundraising event with a book reading from the authors. Crane’s will donate all the proceeds from both events to our Fennville Elementary School for this wonderful program. The book readings are held here in the restaurant in the evening and will include the book, a light meal with a dessert, a book reading by the author, and a book signing at the evening’s conclusion. For more information about the National Book Trust or to donate directly, go to www.booktrust.org.
On June 7th at 6 PM we will host beloved local author, friend and neighbor Wade Rouse. Wade will read from his newest fiction, “The Summer Cottage”, written under the pseudonym of his grandmother, Viola Shipman. Wade’s charm, wit, and love for Michigan shines through in “The Summer Cottage”, a story of attachment to beloved childhood memories, family, and embracing the things that matter in life with an open heart. Check our website soon for ticket information. For lots more info on Wade, go to his website www.waderouse.com and check him out!
$60 for each ticket includes dinner, dessert, a drink, a signed book and discussion with the Author Wade Rouse. These nights are so much fun and for a wonderful cause!
