holiday_heart1 10:00 AM Blind Date with a Book Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Adult Services   203-452-2850 X6   reference@ewml.org
   

Have you been waiting for a chance at a new relationship? Looking to heat up your Valentine's Day? Blind Date with a Book returns to Edith Wheeler Memorial Library!

Stop by the library between February 1 and February 28 to participate in our “Blind Date with a Book” program! It’s easy, fast and fun. Blind Date with a Book matches you with an unknown gift wrapped book which you choose to check out at the library, not knowing the title, author or genre. Then you take your book on a blind date by choosing to meet with, read it and give it a chance to make an impression.

Sure you might be disappointed; but then again ... you may end up having a great read with something you wouldn't have chosen for yourself. With each book is a ‘Rate Your Date' slip. Simply say whatever you want about your date; you won't hurt our, or its, feelings.

Even if your date turns out to be a 'dud' all is not lost. With each slip you return by Monday, March 17th at 8:00 p.m., you can enter our raffle for a $25 gift certificate to Roberto’s Restaurant, Monroe, CT. So stop by the library between February 1 and February 28 and meet your blind date.

misc_none 6:45 PM  -  7:45 PM Book Discussion: TITLE CHANGE: The Sandcastle Girls Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

 THIS MONTH'S TITLE IS CHANGED!

 We've switched books! This month's selection is now The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian.

“A compelling new novel that is part love story, part history lesson. . . . An eye-opening tale of longing and discovery. . . . A bittersweet reflection on hope even in the darkest circumstances. . . . [The Sandcastle Girls] is about the ways the past informs the present, about the pain but also the richness of heritage.” —The Miami Herald

Come share a lively discussion with us. Copies of the book are available for checkout at the front desk one month prior to the discussion date. No registration necessary.
