Join us for our new Brew Pub Book Club!
If you’ve read any great books lately, you probably, immediately, wanted to talk about what you read with friends. But that can be hard if you don’t have a place to meet that welcomes groups of bibliophiles.
“While there’s a great book club that meets at the library, it’s not always convenient for everyone who wants to go”, says organizer Valerie McIntire. “Not everyone can make it to the library.”
After McIntire decided on the location for the Brew Pub Book Club, she launched an outreach effort that has included posting fliers at the library and at the pub as well as extensive online outreach through sites like Facebook, Twitter, and the library website, fortbragglibrary.org, which she hopes will be helpful in recruiting new readers.
The Overtime Brewing Company has been very welcoming. “They have a good, cozy atmosphere for this sort of group”, says McIntire.
This book club isn’t your ordinary book discussion group. The Brew Pub Book Club is designed to be a group of friends or soon-to-be friends who’ll get together to socialize, *eat, drink and discuss some reading along the way. It’s for those night owls whose discussions tend to get a little loud, however, at Overtime, there’s no one around to shush you! So bring a friend and join us at Overtime Brewing Co., located at 190 Elm St., Fort Bragg, every 4th Wednesday of the month, 7-8 pm.
If you have questions about the book club or would like to reserve a copy of the current selection, drop by the library or give Valerie a call @ 707-964-2020.
*some snacks provided by Friends of the Fort Bragg Library.
