Special Event | A Late Summer Fete Gala 

Building that time machine didn't quite work out for you? Worry not, because Writers & Books is bringing the past to you — 1920's Paris, to be specific. On Saturday, September 7, the Nixon Peabody event space at 1300 Clinton Square will be transformed into Ernest Hemingway's version of Paris.

The event is inspired by Hemingway's "A Moveable Feast," memoirs recounting his time in Paris in the 1920's. Entertainment includes live music by The Pickpockets, performances by local youth writers, and a silent auction. There will also be a vast array of food and drink, with French-themed grazing stations, an open bar with beer, wine, and cocktail specials, and dessert and coffee to top it all off.

Put on "Great Gatsby"-esque attire, and you'll be set to enjoy this throwback event. A patron reception begins at 6 p.m., and the Summer Fete runs 7-11 p.m. Patron cost is $150, while tickets to the Summer Fete alone cost $100. Go to wab.org to register, or call 473-2590.
