7:00 PM Stage: The Tale Of Despereaux Now the company returns with its one-of-a-kind theatrical and musical inventiveness in the form of Kate DiCamillo's beloved, Newbery Medal-winning modern fable, "The Tale of Despereaux."

Despereaux is a courageous mouse who dreams of becoming a knight. He sets off on a noble quest that will take him down into dungeons and up to the heights of a castle tower to rescue a beautiful human princess — but the dark-hearted rat Roscuro has other ideas.

Full of gorgeous music, stunning stage effects, witty performances, and a message of optimism and community, "The Tale of Despereaux" is an inspiring and beguiling story for all ages.

Admission/Cost: $30 - $90

7:30 PM Book Signing: Janet Fitch Warwick's will host Janet Fitch as she discusses and signs her new book, Chimes of a Lost Cathedral (Revolution of Marina M. #2). Janet Fitch's first novel, White Oleander, a #1 bestseller and Oprah's Book Club selection, has been translated into twenty-eight languages and was made into a feature film. Her second novel, Paint It Black, hit bestseller lists across the country and has also been made into a film. Her third novel, The Revolution of Marina M., begins an epic journey through the Russian Revolution. She lives with her husband in Los Angeles. This event is free and open to the public. Reserved Seating is available when the book is pre-ordered from Warwick's for the event. Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed.

Book Synopsis:
After the events of The Revolution of Marina M., the young Marina Makarova finds herself on her own amid the devastation of the Russian Civil War---pregnant and adrift in the Russian countryside, forced onto her own resourcefulness to find a place to wait out the birth of her child. She finds new strength and self-reliance to fortify her in her sojourn, and to prepare her for the hardships and dilemmas still to come. When she finally returns to Petrograd, the city almost unrecognizable after two years of revolution, the haunted, half-emptied, starving Capital of Once Had Been, she finds the streets teeming with homeless children, victims of war. Now fully a woman, she takes on the challenge of caring for these civil war orphans, until they become the tool of tragedy from an unexpected direction. But despite the ordeal of war and revolution, betrayal and privation and unimaginable loss, Marina at last emerges as the poet she was always meant to be. Chimes of a Lost Cathedral finishes the epic story of Marina's journey through some of the most dramatic events of the last century - as a woman and an artist, entering her full power, passion, and creativity just as her revolution reveals its true direction for the future.
