      Mental Dialogue presents THE BOOK EXCHANGE (Book Lovers Apply)

      The MD BOOK XCHANGE is a whole new way to conduct a book/reading club and meet new people along the way. At this event you will be introduced to at least three new books while sharing one of your favorite books with others. Each attendee is ask to bring a book you've read and prepare a pitch one minute or less on what the book is about and why you enjoyed it so much.  At the start of the event attendees will pitch their book and afterwards you will be paired with another attendee whose pitch you liked. You will then read each other’s book during the READING PERIOD (15 minutes) in which the room is silent. After the reading period ends you go into the DISCUSSION PERIOD (15 minutes) to discuss the passages read out of each other's book. There will be at least three READING & DISCUSSION periods pairing you with at least 3 people during the course of the event. YOU WILL KEEP YOUR OWN BOOK AFTERWARD THE EVENT. The exchanges are just an opportunity to be introduce to new books and new people.  REFRESHMENTS SERVED (pizza, chips, fruit, drinks). TICKETS: $7/$10 ADVANCE/ or $15 DOOR  SUGGESTIONS (optional): Don't necessarily have people start at page one during the exchanges, instead pick a great chapter or page to start with that allows the reader to catch the essence of your book. You could also have each reader start at a different page or chapter to keep from discussing the same passages out of your own book three different times, but of course this is completely up to you!!!   Lastly we recommend you reread those same pages yourself prior to coming to the event as that will make the discussion livelier versus having to recall the passages from your own book from memory.
