Book Lovers Monthly Book Swap & Gab Session (with guest author CM Fields)

We will be joined by a guest, author CM Fields, who will talk with us about his novel, A Life as a Stock (http://www.amazon.com/A-Life-as-Stock-ebook/dp/B005WUF1VQ/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1358373109&sr=8-3&keywords=a+life+as+a+stock).  Following our discussion with the author, we will do a slightly abbreviated version of our regular book swap (see below).

 

Bring one or more books that you have read and swap with others for ones you haven't read.

If you don't have a book to trade, just come and enjoy the lively book-related conversation and excellent food at La Madeleine's. Go to La Madeleine's website to view the menu.


La Madeleine's offers scrumptious baked goods, french food, espresso, wine, beer, desserts, and all kinds of yummy things.


We have reserved the private dining room in the back.

    Dang it, missed y'all this week. But hoping my new diagnosis of celiac disease will put me on the right track to feeling better soon. It's going to be tough to see all those marvelous treats at La Madeleine, but I'm sure I'll find something to snack on. See you next month! :-)

    This was awesome fun. I left with a great book and loved getting to give them out. I was, also, really in love with us having an author come speak. I hope we can have more author inclusion in the future!
