“We hope to learn, share, inspire and inform one another in a quite setting while discovering new books and new writers along the way,” said Indigo Books owner, Linda Malcolm.
Scheduled to be held every Wednesday afternoon starting on April 6, the programs will begin at 5 p.m. and will feature a variety of presenters, as well as members of the Indigo Books staff. Each discussion will center around new and old books with which readers are either unfamiliar or have not read. The goal of these programs is to share the knowledge and the love of books with like-minded bibliophiles. Each program is scheduled to last 45 minutes, including a question and answer period and time for audience comments, and will focus on three to five related books.
Also, starting on June 8, Indigo Books will be hosting a Summer Story Hour with members of the Indigo Books staff and guests reading from a variety of children’s books.
“Often parents are unaware of great new children’s books. We hope this program will help them chose worthy books that will delight their children,” said Malcolm.
Programs will be held for half an hour every Wednesday at 4 p.m., starting on June 8, and are designed for children ages 3 and up. Parents are asked to stay with their children during the reading.
