The sister-owners of Georgetown Cupcake, a bakery made famous by the TLC channel reality show "D.C. Cupcakes," are getting out of the kitchen to travel to the Indian Trails library in Wheeling for two hours of calorie-free fun on Thursday, Oct. 18.
Katherine Kallinis Berman and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne will be at Indian Trails to promote the publication of their new cookbook, "Sweet Celebrations," between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. at 355 Schoenbeck Road, Wheeling.
The sisters will share their adventures in the cupcake business, their TV show and publications. Copies of their newest book will be available for purchase and autographs; cash and credit cards are welcome. Registration is limited and required for this program by calling (847) 279-2232 or online at www.indiantrailslibrary.org.
"Katherine and Sophie helped launch the cupcake revolution back in 2008," explains Susan Dennison, head of communications services for Indian Trails Library. "The sisters are continually inspired by their spatula-wielding grandma whose recipes are served every day at all of the Georgetown Cupcakes locations."
Library members are also invited to bring a copy of their favorite cupcake recipe to the event. The library will compile the collection of recipes gathered at the event and make it available on the library's website just in time for the holidays.
The Indian Trails Library District serves 67,000 residents in Wheeling, Buffalo Grove and Prospect Heights by providing programs, services and resources that enrich and engage the community.
