Celebrating the release of the new book Milk & Sugar: The Complete Book of Seersucker
A benefit to support the Oxford Film Festival
Oxford Film Festival and Nautilus Publishing are teaming up for a special book launch to benefit the nonprofit Oxford Film Festival. Seersucker Shakedown will be from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, June 3 at the Powerhouse Community Arts Center (413 South 14th St).
With live music, appetizers with a southern flair and Abita Seersucker beer and a special Seersucker gin cocktail courtesy of Proof Beverages, the event is sure to make you feel right at home wearing your best seersucker suit. A special presentation by Milk & Sugar: The Complete Book of Seersucker author Bill Haltom will also be held.
“We are so excited to kick off summer with such a fun party with our friends from Nautilus Publishing,” Oxford Film Festival Executive Director Melanie Addington said. “We are already gearing up for the 2017 festival and have been hosting monthly screenings and workshops and appreciate the wonderful support Oxford provides.”
Tickets not only include admission to the event, but it also includes the book that Haltom will sign on site. Those wearing their best seersucker are entered to win two VIP passes to the 2017 Oxford Film Festival set for February 15-19, 2017.
