ASM Knowledge Library Book Events
We organised 2 book events called ‘Blind date with a book’ in January and February this year. The idea behind the event is that books are wrapped in brown paper, and a description is written on the outside cover. Attendees will then choose a book, not based on the cover or author, but purely on the description. They will then read their chosen book for 120 minutes and discuss the book with other attendees. This event has been brilliant at engaging a diverse range of individuals, and encouraging them to choose a book that they may not have ordinarily chosen.
Some quotes from our book events:
“Lovely event gave me the time to read without any distractions whatsoever. The only kind of “blind date” I would go to”
“A lovely date can’t wait for more. The venue is so pretty, well organised, and with a welcoming team”
“It would be better to organise more genre specific events, like Young Adult, and all Young Adult Fans show up, overall, great job!
“Great idea, loved the diversity in books and how different people with different backgrounds attended”
“Very great first date! Totally loved the idea and execution of it. Can’t wait to attend the coming events and to be a part of this nice and very welcoming family”
We will organise more book events very soon, so please do follow us on social media to stay updated
