The Cone-flower Book Club
Welcome to the Cone-flower Book Club, a book lovers group here in Red Cloud, Nebraska. What follows is information about the club’s mission and organizational items. Feel free to come and join us.
Mission: The mission of the Cone-flower Book Club is to explore a variety of subjects through the reading of books and discussions led by a moderator. The bookstore staff will regularly pick a theme and then create a list of books to be read that will explore it. The informal group will be hosted by The Moonstone Bookstore and Emporium.
Meetings: The club will meet once a month but twice on the same day, once in the late morning, once in the evening which will allow both retired and working participants to be a part of the program. There will also be an online component which will allow people to participate online by offering input on books being read. Meetings will last approximately an hour with refreshments available for sale.
Meeting Day: Last Wednesday of the month, unless the schedule requires changes – 10:30 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
Membership: There are no membership requirements and people can attend sessions even if they have not read the book.
Moderator: Peter Osborne will provide moderation for the sessions.
Books: Participants can either purchase the books at the Moonstone Bookstore in advance of the session or borrow them from the Auld Public Library in Red Cloud.
