An Event For Every Reader

We like to think that our events bring some of the best things together: books, readers, authors, conversation, wine, food… Whatever combination suits you best, we bet you can find it below.
Join us for a book-inspired wine tasting! We pair six wines with six books for a night of fun browsing and sipping. Your ticket includes a full tasting as well as your choice of one of the featured books. As a bonus, bottles of the featured wines are sold at a discounted rate.

Join us for a dinner party you’ll never forget! One of the most wonderful things we do here at the bookstore is our Sunday Sit Down Supper series, where we invite a great writer to talk about their work and our Chef Teryi Youngblood Musolf to plan a menu inspired by it. After hours, we transform the bookstore with long tables and family china, wine and conversation, books and inspiration. Starting with a welcome cocktail, guests spend an evening with an author enjoying a four course meal and incredible conversation. Tickets include your cocktail, dinner, evening with the author, a signed copy of the featured book, and gratuity.

Join us for an evening of conversation and book-inspired libations! For each event, we concoct a unique cocktail inspired by the featured book, then spend the evening sipping away and chatting with the author. Your ticket includes a cocktail and a personally signed copy of the author’s book.

Join us for a Camilla Kitchen event where we bring a cookbook to life! That’s right, at these events Chef Teryi Youngblood Musolf serves up three small plates from the featured cookbook, even preparing some of it in front of you, all while chatting about the book, some tips, and some tricks in the kitchen. Your ticket includes three small plates, wine pairings, time with Teryi, and a copy of the book.

Pop-Up events are just what they sound like: informal chances to meet new authors and vendors in the local area. You can find these at booths set-up in-store on Saturdays, so come by and say hi!

Join us for a leisurely lunch spent with a bestselling author! Our most popular event by far, each Lunch and Lit features a three-course meal at Soby’s Southern Cuisine as the featured author visits each table to chat and sign books before speaking to the room as a whole during dessert. Your ticket includes lunch and a personally signed hard copy of the author’s book.
Join us for an intimate and stimulating conversation with an author! To start, we’ll listen to the featured author converse with a carefully chosen conversation partner, then follow up with Q & A’s and a book signing. This is a free event!
Join us for a Camilla Kitchen event! In this one, we focus on where writing meets food: cookbooks. Come grab a glass of bubbly and sit down to hear Chef Teryi Youngblood Musolf talk about a selection of cookbooks she loves. Your ticket includes your glass of bubbly, time with Teryi, and choice of a featured cookbook.
Join us for exactly what it sounds like—a book and a beer, or rather beers plural. Come meet an author, hear about their book, and try a few different beers we think pair nicely with it. It’s a chill time, which is what these books and beers call for.

Calling all teachers for a special night out! With a teacher ID you’ll get a free glass of our house bubbles and receive a 15% discount on any purchase. These nights are always a blast, packed with raffles, giveaways, and fun. We try to keep them on the third Thursday of every month, but make sure to check the dates in case of changes.

Where are our little readers? Join us for a weekly Storytime out on the front steps of the courthouse (or in the lobby depending on weather). One of our booksellers will read through a big stack of our children’s picture books, then offer kid-sized cookies from Camilla Kitchen to close out the festivities. This is a free event!

Book Clubs

M. Judson book clubs are popular for a reason. Eclectic and lively, our book clubbers show up with a desire to discuss whether they’ve finished the book yet or not (no judgment here). Some of our clubs are genre-based, some are topical, but they’re all guaranteed to bring you new friends and new worlds. Each meets four times a season to discuss four different books covered in the price of your ticket.

TripLit

TripLit takes the escape in reading literally. Join us for trips inspired by the books we love to travel through! We put a whole lot of stock in the power of stories to shape the way we see the world, and we believe books can illuminate the place we are, as well as take us where we’ve never been before. This is just a really fun way to live it out.
