November Events at the Downtown Bookstore: Cooking Demo, Pajama Party, and More

Proprietors of Foxfire Mountain House — an inn located in New York's Catskills — and husband and wife duo Tim Trojian and Eliza Clark will deliver a book talk, cooking demo, and signing at the Fairfield University Downtown Bookstore on November 18 at 7 p.m.

November is a time for giving thanks, and the Fairfield University Downtown Bookstore is giving patrons an array of programming to be grateful for this month.

Fairfield University alumnus and scholar William Schaberg brings a 7 p.m. book discussion and signing of his latest work, Writing the Big Book: The Story of AA, to the Downtown Bookstore on Thursday, November 14. Shedding light on the early years of Alcoholics Anonymous and the international fellowship's 'Big Book' – AA's basic treatise on how to recover from alcoholism, Writing the Big Book is the culmination of Schaberg's 11 years of research into the trove of 1930s documents currently preserved in several AA archives.
 
Interior design, cooking, and DIY projects combine in a riveting book talk and cooking demonstration at 7 p.m. on Monday, November 18 when husband and wife duo Tim Trojian and Eliza Clark, proprietors of Foxfire Mountain House — a magical inn in the Catskills — share their full-color field guide to innovative neo-vintage design style, Foxfire Living. The couple will detail the inn’s design and renovation process, plus offer design ideas, recipes, projects, and tips for duplicating the aesthetic at home.
 
Children’s storytime doesn’t get much better than the Llama Llama Pajama Party on Saturday, November 16. Starting at 3 p.m., kids can come to the Downtown Bookstore dressed in their favorite pajamas for a reading of Llama Llama Pajama Party by Fairfield University students. Crafts and raffle prizes are also in store, and attendees are invited to participate in the giving spirit of the season by donating a pair of new pajamas to the area’s Pajama Program.
 
The Christmas season will be ushered in a little early, thanks to the Downtown Bookstore’s Nutcracker Storytime on November 22 at 4:30 p.m. Presented with the Connecticut Dance School, Nutcracker Storytime brings the magic of the holidays to life with a live dance demonstration, a reading of the beloved children's classic, a simple craft project, raffle prizes, and photo opportunities with the young dancers.
 
With a full lineup of events all month long, November at the Downtown Bookstore will be the gift that keeps on giving. For more information on all upcoming events, be sure to follow the Fairfield University Bookstore on Facebook.
