Last night we kicked off a new book discussion group called Books and Bottles. We met at Winzerwald Winery Evansville Tasting Room because a friend had never been to a book discussion group, and we wanted to make it a non-threatening environment. So, we picked a theme. Any book by Lisa Scottoline, which gave us both her fiction and the collections of essays.
Although it was a small group, we had a great time. That means I didn't finish my book for today. But, I wanted to tell you about the evening. We did talk about Lisa Scottoline's books. But, we also talked about Susan Vreeland's books, Clara and Mr. Tiffany, and Luncheon of the Boating Party. And, we talked about Seabiscuit and Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. And, we talked about all of that with Ray, the manager of the tasting room. Of course, we also bought the sampler, tastes of six wines, and Ray explained what they were. Cheese, crackers, wine, and book discussion. Fun evening. (And, if my sister wants to try German wines when she comes in November, we'll head over there on Saturday.)
We're going back next month. The topic? Banned books.
