Books & Brews

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

The events are free and free-to-all, whether you're a member of WMRA or not. 

Authors whose work we've celebrated and discussed have included acclaimed music journalist Preston Lauterbach, Pulitzer Prize winning historian Alan Taylor, and former Poet Laureate Rita Dove.

Books and Brews series is at Pale Fire the second Tuesday of every month, and at Kardinal Hall the second Wednesday of every month. We hope to see you there!

On Tuesday, February 2nd, author Michael Signer discussed his book, "Becoming Madison: The Extraordinary Origins of the Least Likely Founding Father." An estimated 130 people came out to hear him speak.

Thanks to everyone who came out to our second Books and Brews, making it a great success!  It was standing-room-only at Pale Fire Brewing Company as over a hundred WMRA members were treated to a complimentary beer and a fascinating talk by Gary Noesner.
