Book Clubs in the News

Posted by webmaster
This month's Book Clubs News is all about pairings: books and wine, books and flowers, books and TV, books and business. These are a few of my favorite things. Apparently books are the new cheese. They make everything taste better and they go great with a bold Cabernet. Winery Ships Book Club Picks With Wine
A brilliant (in my humble opinion) Washington state winery has combined two of my favorite things; books and wine. They have a new wine and book club where members can have their books shipped with their wine. You gotta love it. Weymouth Garden Club members pair flowers with favorite books
Book themed flower arrangements draw crowds to the library. The third annual Books in Bloom celebration includes floral interpretations of Jimmy Buffett’s Tales of Margaritaville , The Red Hat Club by Haywood Smith and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares just to name a few. Books on TV in New Zealand
The UK has a show called The TV Book Club, and now New Zealand has what can almost be described as a book variety show. It’s called The Good Word and features visits with book clubs, reviews and more. I’m thinking the US needs to get on the band wagon…and I’m available to host. Just sayin’. Book Club Meets the Business Conference
HarperStudio is bringing authors together for a short conference on business models. Attendees will get a signed copy of each author’s book and the opportunity to discuss ideas with each other and the authors themselves. It’s basically a big ole book club for people in suits.

If you're pairing books with something unique I'd love to hear about it. Email me at Unless it's weird. Then keep it to yourself.
