Milkweed Books is teaming up with Reading Group Choices, an organization that recommends books for reading group discussion, for a celebration of reading groups.All are welcome to this evening of fun giveaways, drinks and snacks, and rounds of author speed-dating with Hala Alyan, Emily Fridlund, Marina Benjamin, Ashley Shelby, Heather Harpham, Deepak Unnikrishnan, Jamie Harrison, and Milkweed author Beth Dooley.It’s an interesting relationship that book lovers have with the Internet: most would rather read a physical book than something on an i Pad or Kindle, and even though an Amazon purchase is just two or three clicks away, dedicated readers would rather take a trip to their local indie bookstore.Yet the literary world occupies a decent-sized space on the web.Single young professionals are invited to bring in a couple of books — whether favorites, disappointments, or yet-to-be-read titles — to be shared during timed, three-minute “book dates” with other single patrons. When asked where the idea for Shirlington’s book dating program came from, Librarian and Program Developer Mary Prisbrey laughs and says, “Although I’d like to say it was my idea, it actually wasn’t. I actually found the idea by Googling.” Prisbrey goes on to explain that she stumbled upon a similar program in Fargo, North Dakota while looking for ways to bring young people into the library.
