About the Event

One of our fav scenes in The Color Purple is set in a 1940s juke joint. It's that the one where Shug Avery serenaded a bashful Miss Celie. Well for Alice Walker Weekend, experience Our Sisters Bookshop transformed into Our Sisters Juke Joint — a place to lay down your burdens while stomping your feet to sultry beats. We offer moonshine in mason jars, soul food on-to-go plates, readings, writings, and a shaking off of the blues.

Come dressed in your best color purple inspired attire. 



    "Gather Blossoms" with us and donate the experience to a sister in need. We love sharing flowers with the living and we can do that with your giving.


    Access to the hippest Juke Joint in town.


    Bring ya 'sister' or a friend along for $10 off each of your tickets This ticket is for TWO attendees. For you and someone that YOU are bringing to share the experience with you.
