A New Reading Challenge &  Book Club!

Join us to talk about Milk Blood Heat via Zoom!

The Challenge: We are challenging our community to step out of their reading comfort-zones and read a new genre or type of book you may not naturally pick up. Each month we will curate selections that fit the challenge, and we will feature them here, in-store, and on social media. We would love for you to share with us and tag us via our social media what you are reading for the challenge! This month's challenge is to read a book judged by its cover!

#PRBreadingchallenge

The Book Club:

We will also host a virtual book club that will discuss a book that fits that month's challenge. This book club is free and open to anyone. You simply have to register via the zoom link. We will offer 20% off the book club if you want to purchase it from us, but this is not necessary to participate. With us, you may buy in-store, call in, or do curbside pickup. You may buy online, but you must select PAY AT STORE, to receive the discount. Then, you can pay over the phone or in personWe will always meet on the last Sunday of the month, this month we are meeting January 30, 2022, at 7PM.

 

This Month's Book Club pick is...

Milk Blood Heat by Dantiel W. Moniz

Register for the book club virtual meeting here on 1/30/22

Set among the cities and suburbs of Florida, each story in Milk Blood Heat delves into the ordinary worlds of young girls, women, and men who find themselves confronted by extraordinary moments of violent personal reckoning. These intimate portraits of people and relationships scour and soothe and blast a light on the nature of family, faith, forgiveness, consumption, and what we may, or may not, owe one another.

A thirteen-year-old meditates on her sadness and the difference between herself and her white best friend when an unexpected tragedy occurs; a woman recovering from a miscarriage finds herself unable to let go of her daughter—whose body parts she sees throughout her daily life; a teenager resists her family’s church and is accused of courting the devil; servers at a supper club cater to the insatiable cravings of their wealthy clientele; and two estranged siblings take a road-trip with their father’s ashes and are forced to face the troubling reality of how he continues to shape them.

Wise and subversive, spiritual and seductive, Milk Blood Heat forms an ouroboros of stories that bewitch with their truth.
