Friday, Nov. 21, 2014 is "Alexander Day" and THE day to do your holiday shopping at Barnes & Noble. Local celebrities will be on hand to read Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, on which our family holiday treat production is based. The readers will include (exact time TBD): Don Russell, "The Magic Guy"; Steve MacDonald from Channel 2 News; Bernie Blaine, a well-known actress and director at Cyrano's; Laura Cisneros from the wonderful organization, Best Beginnings; and Ron Holmstrom (full disclosure), noted entertainment reporter SAG/AFTRA rep for Alaska, occasional actor at Cyrano's but always the "man in the tux" to greet you on opening night! Bring your kids and be prepared to enjoy different celebrity readers throughout the day!
Cyrano's Theatre Company and Big Brothers Big Sisters will benefit from a percentage of all sales that day if you mention "Cyrano's" at checkout. Food, books, music, novelties, cards, games...absolutely EVERYTHING counts when you say "Cyrano's" at checkout. Barnes & Noble even sells cheesecakes for the holidays...and those count, too! You could order half as pumpkin and half as eggnog. I'm told they can stay preserved in your freezer for up to a year. These cheesecakes make a great gift and will ensure you always have something yummy to eat when those surprise holiday guests come to call!
You can also make purchases online from November 21 - 28. We will get a percentage of those sales, too! For online purchases November 21 - 28, just enter our bookfair ID# on the payment page to make sure we receive credit. Bookfair ID #: 11475282
