CENTER HARBOR — Bayswater Book Co. of Center Harbor will sponsor a special Tea, Talk & Treats event featuring an adaptation of Karel Hayes' new book, The Christmas Visitors, at Lavinia's Restaurant in Center Harbor on November 17 at 4 p.m.
Performed by Frank and Vinette Wells, The Christmas Visitors is the third and final book in Hayes' popular picture book series. Tickets are $30 and include tea and treats prepared by Lavinia's chef, as well as a copy of the book.
Hayes' The Christmas Visitors follows The Winter Visitors and The Summer Visitors with a third story of a gentle beartakeover of a cottage that has been closed up for the season by its owners. When the family decides to celebrate the holidays in the cottage, however, the bears must skedaddle.
Watercolor artist and illustrator Karel Hayes' has illustrated over 10 books, including Who's Been Here? A Tale in Tracks and A Time for the Fair. Her paintings have appeared in exhibitions throughout the United States.
Bringing The Christmas Visitors to life will be Frank and Vinette Wells; well known for their performances at The Barnstormers Theater, including two productions of On Golden Pond. They have also performed On Golden Pond in Laconia, Holderness, and at the Unity Theatre in Brenham, Texas.
This event will be the last Tea, Treats & Talk of the season for Bayswater Book Co. All Tea, Treats & Talk events this season were sold out, something that Bayswater owner Michelle Taft believes it is a precursor for an even bigger and better series for next season.
"Being able to meet an author and hear him/her speak in an intimate restaurant setting really brings a book to life," Taft explains. "It can be a much more personal and meaningful experience than a simple book signing."
