Eat and Read Book Club

Eat and Read Book Club

Looking for a book club?  The Eat and Read Book Club meets at Northwind Book & Fiber every other Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m.  The first meeting of the current academic year is October 20th, 2018.

Read and discuss  world-renowned works of literature, and, as the name suggests, food is involved!  It is potluck style, and with the 2 p.m. meeting time this year, it will be appetizers & snacks rather than a dinner.

The group has been meeting for several years and is led by Jessica Smuda and Heidi Wahlstorm (a bookseller at Northwind). Jessica & Heidi both have degrees in English.  New members are always welcome.  Each year there is a $5 materials fee. 

This year's theme is "World Lit".   At the first meeting we will be reading short poetry together.  The meeting will also be the opportunity to discuss the logistics and the book selections.

To register or for more details:  Contact Heidi at 715-645-2039 or heidi.wahlstrom@gmail.com.   You can also contact the store to register.

Below is the list for 2018-2019.  There may be some changes of titles and the book order after initial meeting.
