    Actress Reese Witherspoon is bringing her book tour to Connecticut and she will be in Madison tonight.

    “Whiskey in a Teacup” is Witherspoon’s first book and RJ Julia Bookseller is bringing her book tour to Connecticut today. It was originally scheduled for the Shubert Theater in New Haven, but it will now be at the First Congregational Church of Madison, at 25 Meetinghouse Lane in Madison.

    The title is a lesson Witherspoon’s grandmother taught her, according to the description on the Simon and Schuster website. It says her grandmother always said that “a combination of beauty and strength made southern women ‘whiskey in a teacup’” -- delicate and ornamental on the outside, but strong and fiery on the inside. 

    General admission tickets are $59 and each ticket includes an unsigned copy of the book.

    The VIP ticket package is no longer an option and those tickets will be refunded.

    Those tickets were listed for $404 and were to include a meet and greet with Witherspoon, preferred event seating in the first five rows, early entry into the theater, an individual photo with Witherspoon, a limited edition Draper James tote bag filled with gifts and goodies and a signed copy of “Whiskey in a Teacup.”

    You can purchase tickets on the Shubert Theater website.
