New Romance Book Discussion Coming to Eagle

March 21, 2013 by Reader's Connection

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:

eagEver 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
