Books & Bars is free and open to the public. If you appreciate what we offer and want to help us continue to provide a free, fun and informative club. Please consider contributing: 1. Buy books from our sponsor, local independent bookseller, Magers & Quinn. 2. Enjoy food and beverages at the venue (usually Bryant Lake Bowl). 3. Tip your friendly neighbor Moderator, Jeff Kamin. For years, I’ve produced and performed this as a labor of love. Thank you for helping “Reinvent the Book Club”.
Reinventing the Book Club
Books & Bars is an open public book club show. We provide a unique atmosphere for a lively discussion of interesting authors, fun people, good food and social lubrication (liquid courage).
You’re invited to our meetings with moderator Jeff Kamin and other spirited characters the first 3 Tuesdays each month.
1st Tue Chanhassen The School II Bistro
2nd Tue Minneapolis Republic – Calhoun Square
3rd Tue St. Paul Amsterdam Bar
“For those who take their books straight up – not off Oprah’s list – Books & Bars is the cure. Bookended by social hours, it’s a perfect opportunity to meet hip literary types – and the liquid courage doesn’t hurt.”– MPLS. ST. PAUL magazine, July 2008
