On Wednesday, April 17th, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m., the Eagle Branch will host the first of its new book discussion series: Romance Potluck!
Librarian Ellen Flexman has this to say about the new venture:
Ever been to a pitch-in or a potluck? I especially like the ones where everyone brings their favorite dish to share. After the meal, we’re usually exchanging recipes with each other to try later on.
Well, readers of romances are a lot like good cooks. They have their favorites they love to share, and they love to hear about new authors and books to try out. That’s why we named our new book group at Eagle “Romance Potluck.” It gives everyone a chance to sample good stories and share ones they like with everyone else.
Each month we’ll have a theme, like Nora Roberts & Friends, or Romance Comfort Food, to start off the discussion, but the group can take the discussion wherever it wants to go.
Not sure what books fit the theme? Not to worry—we’ll have a list of suggested books to try before each meeting. For instance, for our first meeting on April 17–with the theme “What’s Your Favorite Romance”–I asked three of Eagle’s favorite romance readers for their favorites, and here’s what they said:
MacKenzie’s Legacy by Linda Howard
The MacGregor series by Nora Roberts, which includes
The Viking Series by Sandra Hill, which includes
and Viking Unchained
To Love a Dark Lord by Anne Stuart (available only as an e-book)
Take Me by Bella Andre
Lead Me On by Victoria Dahl
See you romance readers on April 17th!
