Minnesota Library Association announces

An Evening of “Read Dating”

Are you reading so much that dating has fallen by the wayside? Then come join us for an evening of Read Dating!

Looking for good times as well as good books? Maybe you should try “Read Dating!” It’s like speed-dating, only we’ll use books to help break the ice with other like-minded dateable bibliophiles.

The first round is a mixer. Participants will draw a question such as “What was your favorite book as a teen?” and mingle around the room asking their question of other participants. The second round will be timed dating, when daters will discuss their favorite books (no more than three) in a one-to-one setting for a few minutes before moving to a new literary partner. At the end of the night, if like literary minds want to match up… well, that would be up to them.

The event is suitable for single men and women. Please bring a book you love, hate, have recently read, or just want to talk about.
