Renowned author Marietta McCarty is teaming up with stone soup Books in Waynesboro for lunch, laughter, and philosophizing in the charming atmosphere of this cafe/bookshop.

This month’s installment in the ongoing series based on McCarty’s book The Philosopher’s Table highlights the chapter in the book titled “What About Love?”

McCarty will join diners at stone soup as she rotates among tables, circling from noon to 2 p.m.

Stone Soup’s Chef Laura will prepare specialties to complement Southern fare. The lunch bell rings for $10.

Menu includes Cold Soup Shots, Ham Biscuits with Laura B’s famous biscuits, Corn and Bean Salad and Peach Hand Pie. Most food will be locally sourced. Or select a lunch entree, dessert of the day, coffee or tea and lively discussion as we dig together for the meaning of love.

As a special treat, we will have music from Kevin Chisnell and John Hoy.

Reservations for lunch are recommended due to limited seating. From 2:00-2:30 p.m., Marietta will sign books while chatting with her lunch dates as well as members of the community arriving after lunch.

In addition to The Philosopher’s Table, stone soup will also have Marietta’s first two books for sale – Little Big Minds: Sharing Philosophy with Kids (a New York Times bestseller) and How Philosophy can Save Your Life: 10 Ideas That Matter Most (winner of a Nautilus Book Award).
