Ready to win?? Leave a comment on our blog; one person will be randomly chosen. You can win a copy of The Cocktail Guide to the Galaxy: A Universe of Unique Cocktails from the Celebrated Doctor Who Bar, by Andy Heidel! “For the first time ever comes a book that unites two of the best things in the world: nerd culture, and booze. Because if anything is true, it’s that nerds are awesome, and many of us like to throw back an adult beverage or two while re-watching Firefly for the seventeenth time.”

Welcome, everyone, to Books and Beverages! This is our book group podcast, where we discuss different genres of books each week, while we sit in our comfy chairs and drink our beverages. And you are, of course, an important part of this book group. So if you do not already have a nice beverage please go get one, so you can join the experience of our book group.

Who is joining us this week? Our regular hosts Angie and Mary are here. This week our guest host is Kathy Parker, director of libraries at St. John’s and St. Ben’s.

Bonus announcement: If you are in the St. Cloud or Collegeville, MN area on November 7 at 7pm – you could meet award-winning author John Scalzi! He be at the Pellegrene Auditorium at St John’s University to talk about what science fiction can teach us about the role of technology in human experience. A book signing will follow the talk.
