Book Swap -- Coming in October!

Eat, Drink, Talk...and Swap Books!
A literary evening at Ellen Plumb’s City Bookstore

Book Swap is a fun social literary evening designed to connect people who love to read and talk about books with great food, local beer and wine, and lively conversation!

Bring a book you love, one you can talk about all night, and are willing to part with during the "swap" at the end of the evening. Most Book Swaps have a theme such as mystery, summer reads, historical fiction, to guide your selection.
5:30pm ~~ Check-in, mingle, and enjoy something delectable to eat and drink, courtesy of Emporia’s own Radius Brewing Company/Mulready’s Pub/Twin Rivers Winery & Gourmet Shoppe [and other local purveyors].

6:00-7:00pm ~~ Conversations begin. You'll sit in small groups; everyone will have a few minutes to talk about the book they brought and hear about the books others are recommending. Everyone will move to new tables several times, so you'll have a chance to hear from lots of other book lovers. Dessert will be served between rounds.
7:00-7:30 pm ~~ The "swap" part of the Book Swap: A spirited "white elephant" book exchange! Go home with a book highly recommended by another book swapper, plus a free advance reader's copy of a book from Ellen Plumb’s!
