Northshire Bookstore is hosting our fifth annual cake auction to benefit the Book Angel Program.
Start the day at 4:00 with a baking book presentation with Martin Philip, head baker of King Arthur Flour. He will be presenting his new book Breaking Bread. 20% of each Breaking Bread book purchased will be donated to the Book Angel Program.

Following the author talk at 5:00 pm the public is invited to a wine and cheese reception where there will be bidding for donated, book-themed cakes. A special thanks to Consider Bardwell Farm for donating their delicious cheese for this cause. All proceeds will be used to purchase books for children who benefit from the Book Angel Program.
An integral part of the Northshire Bookstore, the Book Angel Program celebrates its 24th year this December. Each year, names of children who may not otherwise have access to books are collected from local schools; during the holiday season, new books are selected by booksellers and customers to be given as gifts to each child. Books are then delivered to the recipients just in time for the holidays. This is a great opportunity for the local community to come together and celebrate the coming months of giving; schools, businesses, and families are encouraged to come and bid on a cake.
