Farm to Tea-Table
Scones, macaroons, cupcakes, and butterscotch blondies were prepared by baker and author Claire Ptak for the tea party celebrating the publication of her new Violet Bakery Cookbook. The delicious event was a benefit for the Point Reyes Farmers Market. Thanks to the farmers who contributed ingredients, to the volunteers who helped out in so many ways, and to Margaret Gradé and Daniel DeLong for the use of their historic Olema Schoolhouse.

Hark, the Book Angels
Prior to the holidays each year, our customers (we call them Book Angels) purchase books for local children. More than 300 books were given out last year, and this year’s need is even greater. We sponsor this project in collaboration with West Marin Community Services and local schools who help us select the recipients. This special selection of books will be available for purchase beginning November 14. If your angel wings can't get you here, just call us at 415-663-1542 or email email@example.com.

Submit original work for Volume 3 of the Inverness Almanac by December 1 via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Box 712, Inverness CA 94937.
