Books are meant to be shared.
Each month, Subtext Bookstore in downtown St. Paul offers a dynamic and diverse selection of book clubs to bring what you've read from the pages of your favorites (or least favorites) out into the world.
While reading is typically a solitary act, we are not islands unto ourselves. Come out and share what you've read/learned/discovered with other like minds in the grand city of St. Paul. Who knows? You just might learn something, gain a new perspective, or make a lifelong friend.
Up first: Sean Sherman's The Sioux Chef's Indigenous Kitchen | Subtext Bookstore | January 28, 2018

This relaxed gathering of individuals offers new perspectives on a chosen monthly theme. You can read from the list of suggestions, or choose a book on your own that fits the theme, and join us to discuss the twists and turns of plot lines while working out to some 16oz curls.
Up next: Karen Tei Yamashita | Tin Whiskers Brewing Co | January 30th, 7:00pm
