Pinking Main Street and the Art and Wine Festival

October is breast cancer awareness month and in order to spread awareness and support, the businesses of Main Street have hung pink lights and created pink-themed displays in their windows. The pink lights are sponsored by Marshall Medical Center and Images of Hope, a coalition of artists and business owners. You can read the Mountain Democrat article on this inspiring movement here.

At the Bookery we used this opportunity to create a pretty window display featuring some lovely books with pink on their covers, and to highlight a few of our cancer and health books.

It has been fun to see our Main Street neighbors' beautiful pink displays.

Synapse wines:

If someone you love is struggling with breast cancer, we just might have a book to help.

The event culminates with Saturday night's festivities for the Art and Wine Festival.
From 6:00 - 9:00 pm  on October 19, Main Street will host over 30 foothill area wineries pouring their delicious tastes, as well as live music at the bell tower by the Brad Wilson Band.  Also, the 2013 Banners on Parade will be auctioned off, celebrating art, local talent, and our wonderful community. You can view the banners here.

We hope to see you all tomorrow night!
