Readers Night Out

Monday, 25 July 2011

Join me? Friends of Literacy has a cool new event this year. It's called Readers Night Out, hosted at Union Avenue Books in downtown Knoxville. Tickets are $20 and we'll be hanging out from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, August 25th.

Whether you're a member of a book club, would like to join a book club or just want to talk about the great books you've read lately, this is the evening for you. (I'm not in a book club because I'm ultra picky about what I read but I love to discuss books.)

The other perk? We have a great group of authors lined up to chat with atendees. To name a few:  Fred Brown (Growing Up Southern), David Hunter (Tempest at the Sunsphere), Michael Knight (The Typist) and Pamela Schoenewaldt (When We Were Strangest).

Disclaimer:  I haven't read these books but hope to soon.  Growing Up Southern is first on my list.

Purchase your ticket here. The night also involves appetizers and wine!

Union Avenue Books is also graciously donating 20% of the proceeds from books sales that evening to Friends of Literacy. We're helping adults in Knoxville learn how to read, earn their GED and get a job. Now that's a great mission.
