The MD BOOK EXCHANGE, COFFE & WINE CLUB is a whole new way to conduct a book/reading club and meet new people along the way. Think of it as speed dating but with books. At this event, you will be introduced to at least three new books while sharing one of your favorite books with others. Each attendee is asked to bring a book you've read (or currently reading) and tell why you enjoyed it so much.
COST: DONATION TO ENTER
While at the event enjoy great food and coffee from Dope Coffee and wine from Sip And Share Wines.
HOW THE BOOK EXCHANGE WORKS: After introducing the book you brought you will be paired with another attendee whose pitch you liked. You will then read each other’s book during the READING PERIOD (10 minutes) in which the room is silent. After the reading period ends you go into the DISCUSSION PERIOD (10 minutes) to discuss the passages read out of each other's
SUGGESTION (optional): Don't necessarily have people start at page one during the exchanges, instead pick a great chapter or page to start with that allows the reader to catch the essence of your book. You could also have each reader start at a different page or chapter to keep from discussing the same passages from your book three different times. Lastly, we recommend you reread those same pages yourself before coming to the event to make the discussion better versus having to recall the passages from your memory.
