The first event is an ARC party on Wednesday, June 27th at 6:30pm. What is an ARC? It’s an advanced reader copy is an uncorrected proof of a new book given to certain people before publication. Writer’s Block Bookstore receives ARCs from major publishers like Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster, and Harper Collins, and wants to share them with you.
The entry fee of $5.00 comes with a glass of wine and a free ARC, or advanced reader copy! All subsequent glasses of wine are bar price, and each glass is accompanied by another ARC.
Then on July 26, oenologist and MIT Journalism Fellow Kevin Begos will participate in a discussion and Q&A about the history, flavors, and origins of wine, as well as a book signing afterward. The event starts at 6:30pm
His book, Tasting the Past: The Science of Flavor & The Search for the Origins of Wine, follows Begos as he embarks on a ten-year journey to seek the origins of wine. He unearths a whole world of forgotten grapes, each with distinctive tastes and aromas, as well as the archaeologists, geneticists, chemists—even a paleobotanist—who are deciphering wine down to molecules of flavor.
Begos offers readers drinking suggestions that go far beyond the endless bottles of Chardonnay and Merlot found in most stores and restaurants. In this viticultural detective story, wine geeks and history lovers alike will discover new tastes and flavors to savor.
This is like a cool new book club, so if you like reading with a glass of wine, check these events out.
