The fun, free event takes place at the Main Library, 215 E. "Bring a favorite book as an icebreaker and pick a literary pseudonym for the evening," said Jennifer Spillman, Manager of Adult Services at the Library.
We are curious about why you don’t like the award winning book everyone else seems to love.
Or maybe (I’ve been told) you’re concerned that we’ll judge what you’re reading (or not reading) and would rather poke around on your own, rather than risk getting librarian side-eye. We like to laugh about truly awful romance covers that hide quite good content.
We love hearing about that unusual book that changed your life.
