QUAIL RIDGE BOOKS & MUSIC—Audrey Penn is a prolific author of children's picture books. She is especially beloved for The Kissing Hand, one of the best explanations around of how to soothe a reluctant child's anxiety about going to school. She takes on a classic holiday story in new book The Miracle Jar: A Hanukkah Story, which teaches the origin of Hanukkah through a modern family's efforts to make a jar of cooking oil last eight days. There aren't that many picture books on the Jewish High Holiday, so enjoy this new one from a master storyteller. 1 p.m., free, 3522 Wade Ave., 919-828-1588, —Zack Smith
