Books & Brews

Books & Brews

Books & Brews, a collaboration with Pale Fire Brewing Company in Harrisonburg, is a series of talks with authors from around our area and the world.

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we suspended all in-person Books & Brews events and will resume the series at Pale Fire once it is safe to do so.

At this time, we are exploring virtual Books & Brews events and will schedule them as they become available. 

WMRA's Books & Brews series is made possible thanks to the support of Gaines Group Architects, the official sponsor of Books & Brews. The Gaines Group has offices in Charlottesville and Harrisonburg.

Mary Katharine Froehlich, Books & Brews Emcee and Host
Authors whose work we've celebrated and discussed have included CIA historian Nicholas Reynolds, acclaimed music journalist Preston Lauterbach, Pulitzer Prize winning historian Alan Taylor, and former Poet Laureate Rita Dove.

We welcome suggestions and if you have an author in mind for a future Books & Brews, send a note to our host, Mary Katharine Froehlich

Books & Brews is usually at 7pm at Pale Fire Brewing Company the second Tuesday of month. When it is safe to gather again, we hope to see you there!
