Books and pies, plus made-to-order picnic sandwiches and another Lu Archer quilt — all are on offer at this year’s St. Giles Jefferson summer event, scheduled for Saturday July 28, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Come browse an impressive array of fiction, mysteries, biographies, and children’s books. You’ll also find history, current affairs, politics, poetry, religion, and cookbooks in the collection, and books on tape, CDs, games, and jigsaw puzzles.
The home-baked pie collection will include the usual favorites: apple, berry, lemon meringue, plus a few surprises, ready to take home and slice or freeze. There’ll be a big selection, but they go fast, so come early. Pre-orders are available.
This year’s new feature, picnic sandwiches made just for you, can be enjoyed under the pines at St. Giles while you browse your new books, or saved for a later treat.
Lu Archer, a well-known master quilter, donated quilts for St. Giles fundraisers for over 40 years. This year the church is raffling a lightweight herringbone-pattern lap quilt that Lu created for the 2014 St. Giles Fair. Now its owner is offering the quilt to be raffled once again. Estimated value is $400. Tickets are $5 or five for $20. The drawing will be held at 2 p.m. at the end of the book sale. The winner does not need to be present.
For more information on the event, to order pies, or to purchase raffle tickets, call 207 624-2569.
