Park Road Books Book Clubs:
The Park Road Books Book Club will be reading Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger for their April meeting. New Bremen, Minnesota, 1961. The Twins were playing their debut season, ice-cold root beers were at the ready at Halderson’s Drug Store soda counter, and Hot Stuff comic books were a mainstay on every barbershop magazine rack. It was a time of innocence and hope for a country with a new, young president. But for thirteen-year-old Frank Drum it was a summer in which death assumed many forms. Book club participants will receive 20% off the $16.00 price.
The Park Road Books Book Club meets at the store on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm. Join us on April 1st.
The Park Road Books Geek Book Club!
The Park Road Books Geek Book Club meets at the store on the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm. Join us on April 8th. We will be reading Daytripper by Fabio Moon. Meet Brás de Oliva
Domingos. The miracle child of a world-famous Brazilian writer, Brás
spends his days penning other people's obituaries and his nights
dreaming of becoming a successful author himself—writing the end of
other people's stories, while his own has barely begun.
But on the day that life begins, would he even notice? Does it start at 21 when he meets the girl of his dreams? Or at 11, when he has his first kiss? Is it later in his life when his first son is born? Or earlier when he might have found his voice as a writer? Book club participants will receive 20% off the $19.99 price.
The Park Road Books Foodie Book Club is held at the store on the last Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm. Join us on April 29. The Park Road Books Foodie Book Club will be reading More Bread Please: High-End Dining from the Pro Server's Perspective by Markus Roberts, and the author will be in attendance! Working in the restaurant industry for almost two decades gave Markus Roberts more than enough material to produce a practical and honest, yet humorous guide created to improve the higher end of the industry for both consumers and employees alike. His passion to excel in ballroom dancing, with plans for opening his own studio in the future, led him to move to NYC and spend six years acquiring some of the best training the country had to offer. Though his book was designed primarily as a guide to help ensure consumers enjoy fantastic dining experiences, he also provides useful information and insight for those interested in a career in fine dining. Included is a behind-the-scenes look into the business of wine, a reference of restaurant jargon, a section on Restaurant Week, a taste of health inspections, and much more. Participants will receive 20% off the $16.95 price. Please join us and Markus Roberts on April 29th at 7:00 PM.
