Our latest Book Club Bonanza Winners: The TGIF Book Club of Lewisporte, NL
One of the joys of being the publisher of Atlantic Books Today is getting to talk to people about the many interesting books that come from this region. Our publishers have diverse books for readers of all tastes. Earlier this month, I joined the TGIF Book Club by Skype to tell them about some books they could be discussing in their group that are published in our own region.
While I was not able to travel to Lewisporte, NL for an in-person visit, joining by Skype meant that I wouldn’t be driving so I could enjoy a glass of wine along with the ladies of the TGIF Book Club. It was a bit like being with my own book club. We provided a Sobeys gift card so the snacks were on us and judging from the picture it looks like this book club picked up some delicious looking meat and vegetable trays. (Unfortunately, my snack options were less interesting in the comfort of my kitchen the day before I buy groceries.) I spoke for about 30 minutes on some of the books that would make engaging book club reads and answered a few questions from the group.
St. John’s-based Breakwater Books provided our winning club with a book club set of A Sudden Sun by Trudy J. Morgan-Cole as well as the offer to have Trudy speak to their group at a future meeting. We made the selection based on the kinds of books this group liked and knowing that they had not yet discovered this wonderful Newfoundland writer. I’ve enjoyed Morgan-Cole’s previous books and knew that this one would not disappoint. The women of TGIF Book Club promise to let us know what they think of A Sudden Sun once they’ve read it.
So have you entered our Book Club Bonanza? If not, what’s stopping you? We’ll join you in person or by Skype, provide the munchies and a book club set of one of Atlantic Canada’s many great books.
