Talking Books with Alice and Ann: Discover the Series Everyone is Talking About!
Spend an evening talking books with Alice Moody and Ann Walters at The Book Stall (811 Elm Street in Winnetka) on Wednesday, August 3 at 6:30 pm. A year ago, professional book facilitators Alice Moody and Ann Walters launched a first-of-its-kind literary subscription series in partnership with The Book Stall. This new literary experience caters to readers who can’t commit to a book club or are looking for something extra. Currently, over 100 subscribers enjoy receiving hand-selected titles and a link to an hour-long talk featuring Alice and Ann debating and dissecting the books.
Join us for this special evening to learn more about the series, the “surprise” books subscribers get in the mail, the “Siskel & Ebert” style talks, and the carefully curated selection of titles. In addition, there will be a raffle for a 6-month subscription ($150 value – entitling the winner to 3 books and 3 talks), as well as other prizes for readers.
More About the Speakers: Alice Moody is a seasoned book group facilitator, writing coach, and workshop leader whose stints in publishing and secondary education laid the foundation for her true passion: inspiring aspiring writers and readers. A lover of beauty and the power of words, Alice thrives on a good dose of excellent novels, strong morning coffee, lively conversation, and her two beautiful children.
Ann Walters, a longtime bookseller in Lake Forest and book group facilitator, writes a popular book review blog, Books on the Table, belongs to too many book clubs, and gets a huge kick out of recommending the right book to the right person. She starts her day with a poem, ends her day with a novel, and never leaves the house without a book. The mother of three grown children, Ann is enjoying introducing her grandchildren to the magic of books.
Alice and Ann met years ago at The Book Stall when Ann registered for one of Alice’s writing workshops. Soon thereafter, they discovered a shared avocation – leading book discussions!
