Pages & Pints

5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
Off-site
Love book clubs but don’t want to be told what to read? You rebel, MPL has the perfect book club for you! We offer a monthly book club with a very different style: we choose a theme for the meeting and you choose the book you want to read based on that theme. Each person discusses their choice; it’s a fun way to discover new authors and books while reading a book that speaks to you. Are you a reader of history? Romance? Memoirs? All are welcome! Bring your pick, grab a pint if you'd like, and let’s talk books.

July's theme: a book with red, white, or blue in the title. 

Check out our list of possible books you could read for each month on our website!

Appropriate for 21+ and no registration required. For a list of future themes and suggested reads, stop by the library for more information. Pages & Pints meets at Wedgewood Brewing the second Wednesday of the month at 5:30pm.

"For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life--until the unthinkable happens." --Amazon book description
