Living Mannequins @ the North Sydney Library: A Reading & Food Event ~ Sunday, November 16th. Join us for a guided tour of the Library and the North Sydney Museum as timeless characters in full costume come to life with readings and re-enactments from classic books and films. There will be three tours - 1 pm, 4 pm, and 7 pm. Tickets are $35 and include a glass of wine (19 yrs and older) as well as 12 mini courses of hors d'oeuvres. Each course will be paired with a book interpreted by a costumed "mannequin", who will give a reading, a storytelling, or a performance. The food will be created by George Smith of the Telegraph House, Mike Black of the Black Spoon, Jim & Shelley MacDonald from Thyme Savour, and Richard Moore from the Lobster Pound and Moore. Each chef will be bringing their unique talents to pairing great food with great books.
