If you haven't gotten to see Brunonia Barry yet, she'll be back in the area this Friday, August 15, at the Barnes & Noble in Peabody at 7:00 PM. In addition to Brunonia Barry doing a reading and signing, the event will also feature lace readers from Artemesia Botanicals in Salem. Artemesia Botanicals is currently the only store in Salem that offers lace reading.
If The Lace Reader hasn't provided enough inspiration to visit and explore Towner's Salem, perhaps this post from the She is too fond of books... blog will motivate you. Dawn, the blogger, used The Lace Reader map of Salem produced by Harper Collins and links from Salem.org to find the sites highlighted in the book.
If you don't feel like walking, but you want to take in the sites of The Lace Reader, fret not - you have options! Historic Salem Pedicab Tours offers Lace Reader inspired tours for one or two people.
