Pursuit of it All

The Scarlet Letter Society Visits Frederick, MD!

The Scarlet Letter Society Visits Frederick

Did you know that Downtown Frederick is the setting for a steamy 50 Shades-ish type of novel?


So was I.

The book in question is called The Scarlet Letter Society and it centers around three women who live in Keytown (ahem) and gather together each month to discuss love, life, literature and their infidelities.


The author of that naughty little ditty is Mary McCarthy, former Fredericktonian, lifelong writer/editor, professional blogger and friend to some of the Pursuit gals.

Mary visited Frederick on her book tour and held a book signing at Curious Iguana, this girl’s favorite independent bookstore in the area. (Seriously. I can not say enough about this place. But that is an article for another time.)

The event happened to fall on her birthday, so of course we had to celebrate with cupcakes. BECAUSE, OF COURSE.

Now I would be completely remiss if I did not show off the cupcake masterpieces. Cakes to Die For took their inspiration from the book and blew our minds with their unique creations. We almost didn’t want to sample them they looked so outstanding. (We did, of course. Because, again, CUPCAKES.)

It was a fun night to be sure!

By the way, if steamy books are your secret (or not-so-secret) guilty pleasure, then you’ll definitely want to give Mary’s book a try. Need more convincing? Popsugar recently named The Scarlet Letter Society one of their best Summer books for women.

One thing is for sure, you’ll never look at Frederick, or Pop Rocks, the same way again…

Blogger. Marketer. Deadline juggler. Flibbertigibbet. A fan of all things glitter and girly, Jen’s passions include gabbing with girlfriends, running marathons, sipping (okay, gulping) cocktails and waxing poetic about the tortured soul of Professor Snape. Rarely found without her nose in a book (or her iPhone), she acknowledges that her level of geekery might not be for everyone. Consider yourself warned. Her ultimate goal in life is to be a professional wanderer of the internet or Amy Poehler’s BFF. (Both totally accomplishable, of course.)
