The day before Books & Brunch is amazing. Members start early, transporting props and paperwork, silent auction and raffle items, boxes of books, cases of wine and floral arrangements  to The Abbington. That's when the magic begins. By mid-afternoon, the banquet facility is transformed from a neutral site into a dazzling array of artfully-arranged  auction and raffle items and ALCW displays.
