Twelfth Night Book Flood
posted January 2, 2019 10:12 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sun January 6 at 2:00 PM, Flannery Culp's house
Scheffer Ave, St Paul, MN, USA (Map & Directions)
Inspired by Iceland's Jolabokaflod, but timeshifted to a day when most people should be back in town and recovered from the holiday brouhaha.
Wear something cozy, bring a book to exchange, and prepare for a lazy Sunday afternoon of snacks and reading. Partners, kids, random book lovers you encounter on the street are all welcome as well.

Note: I also invited people to this over on Facebook, so even if you're the only one who RSVPs here, please come! I promise it won't be a lonely two-person meetup.

If you have a preferred book exchange method, vote for it below:
  • Gaming (bingo, dice, feats of strength, etc)
  • Blind date style
  • Basket o' books free-for-all
Also, that is my street but the random dot Google added is not my house! I'll MeMail the address to any yeses by Sunday.

Is it okay to bring graphic novels for the exchange? How about zines? I will probably come to this but need to find a book I can part with...

Sure! Anything you like that you think others would also enjoy.

Last time I drove past Half Price Books there were giant sale signs in the windows, so you might be able to find a cheap second copy of something and not have to give up a favorite.

This is a fun idea and I'd *love* to meet more Twin Cities MeFites, but I am unfortunately busy :(

I won't be able to make it due to small children but it sounds *heavenly*.

Small children are fine (a friend of mine may bring her niece, who's around 3) as long as they are OK with a friendly but very enthusiastic dog. This neighborhood also has an awesome playground and ice cream/coffee shop if you need good behavior bribes!

ach. I am just seeing this now! What a great idea. I'd love to join for (or host) another one of these in the future.
