Bookmark It’s Wine and Sign is this Friday, March 20 from 6 to 8 p.m. Local author and mathematician Bob Brigham will be on hand with his two whodunnits, Math is Murder and Murder by the Numbers.
Murder by the Numbers sneak peak: Pomp, circumstance, and murder mark the graduation ceremony at Marcus Rome State University. Famed philanthropist and commencement speaker, Douglas Norwood, lies dead. There is no apparent motive. A cryptic message to a local television station provides many questions but few answers. Sergeant Tom Warren and the campus police are faced with the grim task of untangling the mess.
In addition to Bob, Bookmark It will also serve complimentary wine for this fun evening of murder most foul. Don’t miss this delightful event.

March 1, from 7 to 9 p.m., the Audubon Park Garden District is hosting a story slam with our pals at The Orlando Story Club at East End Market.
What is a story slam? It’s a story telling contest where slammers compete in front of an audience, vying to tell the best tale in just five minutes. Competitors put their names in a hat and at the beginning of the evening’s festivities a lucky ten will have their names drawn. We’ll also recruit people from the audience to be judges. Then our emcee will guide participants and the audience through a raucous night of food, drink, and wonderment.
This story slam’s theme will be Wild Adventures. The five minute tales will be measured on how well they are told, how well the stories are constructed and how well the story fits the theme of Wild Adventures. Remember, good stories have a beginning, a middle and an end. The stories can be funny, happy or sad, but winners will be able to combine a good story with a solid performance. There will be prizes and, best of all, it will be a fabulous evening of entertainment
General admission just $12 and supports the Audubon Park Garden District’s mission to build the best in community. This will be a sell out event so get your tickets here now. You don’t want to miss it.
