Grape Expectations

Please join us on Tuesday, October 19th from 7:00-8:00PM at Vintner's Winery for Grape Expectations, a Pennsylvania Dutch mystery with recipes. In this story, a couple of outsiders have bought an old farm in Mennonite Pennsylvania. They say they want to grow fruit, but their real plan is to start a vineyard and open a winery which will clash with the teetotalling Mennonites. When the vineyard manager is murdered, everyone is a suspect! Please register online for this program and ask a librarian for a copy of the book.
