The Retirees join with the Dunbar Library to present a book club every other month during the year in a pleasant but unusual locale. The name the book club is “UnWin(e)d,” a Friends of the Library book discussion group that meets at the Beavercreek location of Winans Fine Chocolates and Coffees (3510 Pentagon Blvd—in front of Hilton, across from Soin Medical Center).
What do books, coffee, chocolate, wine, and good conversation have in common? If your first thought was, “Clearly, it’s that they’re all awesome.” then pay attention!
Think of it as a happy hour that involves talking about some of the most interesting books around with some of the most interesting people around. I’ve got you wondering now, haven’t I? What exactly are these “most interesting books” and who are these “most interesting people?” Fair questions. The books we’ll be reading will be relatively new…generally published within the past year or so. They’ll generally be literary fiction and they’ll generally be under-the-radar. We’re trying to bring you books that aren’t the titles everyone’s already talking about but that we think are interesting and will generate a lot of good discussion. As for the interesting people, that’s where you come in. Join us and share your thoughts on that month’s book. Whether you love it or hate it, we want to hear what you have to say.
