Summer Reading Festival
Also appearing is Jerry Nevins, a local entrepreneur and one of the founders of Kansas City’s frozen cocktail bar Snow & Co. Nevins is the author of Sloshies: 102 Boozy Cocktails Straight From Your Freezer.

Both authors will sign copies of their books.
The evening also features …
