MELSA launches another Club Book season bringing best-selling and award-winning national and regional authors to library communities throughout the seven-county Twin Cities metropolitan region. The 2014 Winter-Spring line up features literary stars successful in a variety of genres with Amy Thielen, classically trained chef and host of Food Network’s “Heartland Table” kicking things off on February 3 at the Prior Lake Library hosted by Carver County Library.
Club Book is coordinated by Library Strategies, the nonprofit consulting group of The Friends of the St. Paul Public Library. A new podcast service will be an exciting enhancement. The podcasts will be uploaded shortly after an author program and available free via the Club Book website and iTunes. Check out Club Book’s pilot episode that outlines how the podcasts will work and promotes this season’s authors.
Club Book is made possible through Minnesota’s Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund, a portion of the state’s 2008 Legacy Amendment aimed at preserving and enlivening Minnesota’s rich cultural traditions.
