Downtown Bookstore to Feature Adelia Moore, Pink Pledge in October

Author and psychologist Adelia Moore will discuss her latest book release when she visits the Fairfield University Downtown Bookstore for a reading and discussion on October 10 at 7 p.m.

Authors, including psychologist Adelia Moore and novelist Deborah Vadas Levison, will stop by the Downtown Bookstore this month as part of the store's ongoing book talk and signing series.

October may be a time for trick or treating, but the Fairfield University Downtown Bookstore will only be providing patrons with treats all month long, thanks to an exciting lineup of authors and book readings.

It all kicks off on October 10 at 7 p.m. when author Adelia Moore visits the Post Road location for a reading and book talk on her latest title, Being the Grownup. In an effort to help both parents and grandparents be the ‘grownup’ that their children and households need, the psychologist, mother, and grandmother will offer her ideas, tips, and tricks on taking charge in parental roles and being the caregiver their families need.

The Downtown Bookstore won’t be all black and orange for Halloween — instead, it will be painted pink, thanks to a month-long Pink Pledge drive to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Also helping to shed light on the topic is Caryn Sullivan, author of  Happiness Through Hardship: A Guide and Journal For Cancer Survivors, Their Caregivers and Friends During an Initial Diagnosis. Appearing in discussion on October 17 at 7 p.m. at the Downtown Bookstore, the healthy lifestyle writer will empower readers to take immediate steps for being prepared, less stressed, and better able to find some joy within the journey that is caring for a loved one with cancer.

The following night will bring to life a classic story perfect for a mysterious and eerie evening, with the store hosting the Downtown Cabaret Theatre to perform a Sherlock Holmes story in costume and preview pieces of an upcoming DCT show. Perfect for guests ages 3 and up, the fun begins at 4:30 p.m. on October 18 and features crafts and raffle prizes.

Novelist Deborah Vadas Levison brings to the Downtown Bookstore a dark tale of secrets and hidden horrors when she discusses her latest book,  The Crate on October 24. Telling the story of a young couple who survived the Holocaust and sought refuge in Canada, a single act of unspeakable violence defiles their newfound sanctuary and reveals the dark horrors that live within a crate uncovered in their home’s crawl space. The narrative about the book will take shape starting at 7 p.m. with Levison’s reading, discussion, and book signing. 

The month concludes when author Heather Frimmer appears in conversation with blogger Suzy Leopold to discuss Frimmer’s latest release,  Bedside Manner, on October 30. Taking readers on a journey of complications that often arise in relationships during periods of stress, the novel draws on Frimmer’s own insights as a physician working in the medical field, and weaves together a story showcasing the unique bond between mother and daughter. 

With a full lineup of events all month long, October at the Downtown Bookstore will be far from a fright. For more information on all upcoming events, be sure to follow the Fairfield University Bookstore on Facebook.
