Wrestling show on Saturday

Atlantic Pro Wrestling — formerly Wrestling Star Wars — will hold a professional wrestling show on Saturday at the Newbury Fire Hall at 7 p.m. This is the final show of the year.

The evening will pit champion “The Unequaled One” Todd Sople against “Demon” Ortiz in a 30-minute Ironman match.

The match will be “career versus title,” since Ortiz has challenged Sople that if he can’t beat him, he will retire from pro wrestling, organizers say.

Among the other matches of the evening, “Twisted Hatter” Alex Creed will also be defending the New England Championship in a “Triple Threat Match.” The “Full Force Elimination” portion of the show is a tag-team elimination event with four teams of four wrestlers each.

Tickets are on sale at the door for $10. Alcohol may be sold to those over 21 with proper ID. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., bell time is 7 p.m.

Hambley discusses legal thriller

Rowley author Connie Johnson Hambley will speak about her new legal thriller “The Charity” at Jabberwocky Bookshop on Saturday at 7 p.m.

“The North Shore of Massachusetts has the perfect settings for novels, especially thrillers,” she writes. “With its deep history of rags-to-riches stories, beautiful and remote vistas, and its proximity to Boston with its colorful history of crime figures, this area provides the reader with a great context that really makes a story come alive.”

In the book, readers will follow the story of a North Shore native who, in the process of trying to clear her name of murder, threatens to expose a cell of the IRA, the Irish Republican Army.

Following the reading, Hambley will sign copies of her book and answer questions. Jabberwocky is located in the Tannery Marketplace on Water Street in Newburyport.
