As the number of COVID-19 cases continue to rise at alarming rates the December 3rd events will be both held virtually on the same day and time, and held a 2nd time live on location at the Barbara Fritchie AirBnB when it is decided it is safe to hold such an event. Bryan Chaney, the owner of the Barbara Fritchie AirBnB, and I hope by maintaining safe distancing, limiting group gatherings, wearing masks and washing hands we all will stay safe and healthy.  I hope you will join me virtually on this website on Dec. 3rd to celebrate Barbara's birthday.  I will announce on this website and on my Facebook page when a live in person book talk, and tea party can be held in Frederick, MD at the AirBnB.  Keep checking back on this website for the updates.  This decision is disappointing for me as I was so looking forward to my 4th visit to a beautiful city, (and I have nonrefundable airline tickets and car rental haha),  but the health of all of us is the most important thing at this time!  Please check back here for future announcements. *Stay safe, stay home, enjoy virtual events, read books, and we'll see you soon!
