The Great Southern, Richmond's first "Twin Peaks" celebration, takes place next month from April 16-19, marking the 25th anniversary of the acclaimed television show by David Lynch.

But events are still taking shape: Organizers have added actress Charlotte Stewart, who played Betty Briggs in "Twin Peaks" and Mary X in Lynch's midnight film classic, "Eraserhead."

Stewart will join author Brad Dukes ("Reflections: An Oral History of Twin Peaks") for a Q&A and signing at Chop Suey Books on Friday, April 17, and serve as a judge for the "Mr. and Miss Twin Peaks" costume contest at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery on Sunday, April 19, at 3 p.m. Fans also may remember Stewart from her credits in "Tremors," "Human Highway" and "Slums of Beverly Hills," and as Miss Beadle on television's "Little House on the Prairie."

The Great Southern is being presented by Movie Club Richmond, Makeout Creek, and the Video Fan, and has a slew of familiar sponsors including: Bev's Homemade Ice Cream, Big Secret, Blue Bones Vintage, Chop Suey Books, Curio Market, Deep Groove Records, Dinamo, Dixie Donuts, 8 1/2, GWARbar, Halcyon Vintage, Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, Ipanema Cafe, Lamplighter Roasting Company, The Magpie, Portrait House, David B. Robinson CPA, Sacred Bones Records, Steady Sounds, Sticky Rice, Strange Matter and Strawberry Street Market.
