continued The Cazenovia Public Library has ordered extra copies of Kilmer-Purcell and Ridge’s books in anticipation of increased demand due to the event. “Their books, as well as the DVD of their cooking show, have been very popular at the library,” said Director Betsy Kennedy.
“It’s always exciting to meet people who have written successful books, and they are not only authors but also recognized from their two television programs. To have people that renowned in town is a great opportunity for the community,” Kennedy said.
Copies of “The Bucolic Plague” and “The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook” are available at the Cazenovia Public Library and will be available for purchase and signing by the authors at the event.
Products from Kilmer-Purcell and Ridge’s “Mercantile” store also will be made available for purchase during the event.
Tickets for “The Fabulous Beekman Boys” book signing and tasting event are $25 and may be purchased in advance at Cazenovia Jewelry, Lillie Bean, Tizzy’s, or the Greater Cazenovia Area Chamber of Commerce office. Limited tickets will be available the day of the event.
This event is sponsored by the Historic Cazenovia Business District of the GCACC, Cazenovia College, Gene Gissin Photography, Amanda Bury Antiques, Tizzy’s and Lillie Bean.
