We are having a "Where's Waldo in Irvington?" Scavenger Hunt this month. Pick up a scavenger hunt form during store hours in July and search for the "Waldo" statuettes at the designated Irvington locations. After completing the form, return it to Bookmamas and receive a token prize. Then you are eligible to place your entry in the larger prize drawing which will be held in August.
Local Vino: The Winery Boom in the Heartland (Paperback)
The art and craft of winemaking has put down roots in Middle America, where enterprising vintners coax reds and whites from the prairie earth while their businesses stand at the hub of a new tradition of community and conviviality. James R. Pennell tracks among the hardy vines and heartland terroir of wineries across Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, and Ohio. Blending history and observation, Pennell gives us a ground-up view of the business from cuttings and cultivation to sales and marketing. He also invites entrepreneurs to share stories of their ambitions, hard work, and strategies. Together, author and subjects trace the hows and whys of progress toward that noblest of goals: a great vintage that puts their winery on the map.
