And so it begins…

What do books, coffee, chocolate, wine, and good conversation have in common? If your first thought was, “Clearly, it’s that they’re all awesome.” then pay attention because have I got something for you!  The University Libraries are excited to announce that, thanks to a grant from the Friends of the Libraries, we will be hosting a book discussion every other month of the 2013-2014 academic year at Winan’s Fine Chocolates and Coffees.

Think of it as a happy hour that involves talking about some of the most interesting books around with some of the most interesting people around.  I’ve got you wondering now, haven’t I?  What exactly are these “most interesting books” and who are these “most interesting people?”  Fair questions.  The books we’ll be reading will be relatively new…generally published within the past year or so. They’ll generally be literary fiction and they’ll generally be under-the-radar. We’re trying to bring you books that aren’t the titles everyone’s already talking about but that we think are interesting and will generate a lot of good discussion.  As for the interesting people, that’s where you come in.  Join us and share your thoughts on that month’s book.  Whether you love it or hate it, we want to hear what you have to say.

As we get closer to the first discussion, I’ll occasionally add information about the book we’re reading, author interviews, and other things I think you might find interesting.  I’d love to hear your thoughts along the way, so feel free to comment. In the meantime, happy reading!
