Downtown Bookstore to Host Virtual Author Talk, Food Drive

Author James Ross will lead a virtual book talk event on Thursday, December 10 at 7 p.m. to discuss his latest historical fiction release.

The Fairfield University Downtown Bookstore is slated to host several events — both in-person and virtual — this month, including a food drive benefiting Operation Hope.

As December sweeps in to send 2020 into its final days, the Fairfield University Downtown Bookstore is using those final days to host several in-person and virtual events for all to enjoy.
 
Just in time to for the holiday season, the Bookstore will host a Sidewalk Food Drive outside of its 1499 Post Road storefront on Saturday, December 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Non-perishable food items will be collected from drive-by cars and customers on foot; volunteers will be standing by to help collect, sort, and organize donations. All the food items collected will be donated to Operation Hope, a Fairfield-based organization that aims to eliminate hunger and homelessness in the area, and help people find stability in their food and shelter needs.
 
On Thursday, December 10, the Bookstore is slated to welcome author James A. Ross to the small screen for a virtual author talk. Starting at 7 p.m. in a Facebook Live broadcast from the store’s account,  Ross will discuss his latest historical fiction, Hunting Teddy Roosevelt, a thrilling blend of historical fact and fictional adventure that envisions the 26th president of the United States on safari in Africa, hunting the terrain — all while being hunted himself. The book is also available for sale at the Downtown Bookstore and online.
 
To round out the Bookstore’s December lineup, the artwork of Teresa Rainieri will be on display all month long as part of the store’s Stairwell Artist of the Month series. The locally based artist strips away the color and allure of some of the most iconic people and objects of our time and relies on the contrast of shadow and lines to reveal the true heart of the image. Her bold – yet simple – work can be found throughout the month of December lining the staircase leading up to the store’s second floor.
