Read It & Eat!

Life is busy.  After a full day of working or running errands, cooking dinner, and getting everything settled for the evening, who really feels like coming back out at night for a mid-week book club?  But what if there was a book club during the day, where you could stop in on your lunch break?

Adult Services Librarians Jessica and Katie are excited to announce the Livingston Public Library’s first Read It & Eat book club!  An offsite book club that meets at a local restaurant during the afternoon. Perfect timing for those on their lunch break, those out and about running errands, and/or those waiting to pick up their children from school.  After all, you have to eat lunch anyway, right? Why not spend it eating and discussing a great book! 

The first Read It & Eat! book club meeting will take place at Livingston Bagel located at 37 E Northfield Rd., on Monday, February 11.  We will meet at 12pm and the discussion will begin at 12:15pm.  By now you’re probably wondering “But if I’m so busy, will I have time to read a book?” & “What are these library folk reading, anyway?”  

look alive out thereThe first book will be Look Alive Out There by Solane Crosley.  It’s a collection of short essays Glamour raves about.  Seriously, they’re quoted for saying “Whether she’s spying on a neighbor’s kid, crashing a shiva, or freezing her eggs, Crosley toggles effortlessly between hilarity and heartbreak.”  Doesn’t that just sound wonderful?

So whether you have time to commit to reading the book cover to cover, or only end up reading a few essays out of the collection, pick up a copy at the Livingston Library’s Patron Services desk. beginning January 7, and join us!

*The Livingston Library staff provides the book and the discussion, the attendees are responsible for their own food and drink.*
