Wine and appetizers will be available starting at 6:30 p.m.

Rohan elegantly weaves tattooed women, Irish Army reservists, identical twins, a missing monkey, traumatized girl scouts and more, into a world we all recognize, fear, and can’t help but love. – Siobhan Fallon, author of You Know When the Men Are Gone.
