Get your Geek Love on! For the first time the BookUP will take place at Greensboro's newest and most fashionable hangout for the cerebral and off-center: GEEKSBORO COFFEEHOUSE CINEMA. Wine and beer will also be sold. What a way to start an evening of heady romance: reading a favorite book, to yourself, snuggled next to the object of your affection whilst sipping and snacking, laying the electrical wiring for so much more to come. (Arrive early to grab a couch or lounge chair.) Single readers are also welcome. Who knows what sly, smoldering glances await over the cover of a book or e-reader?
Here’s what Maya Angelou said about The BookUP: “It is easier for me to trust people who read than those who talk, and even those who talk about reading. Writers need readers desperately and whether they know it or not, readers need writers desperately. One hand washes the other. The aspect of one hand trying to wash itself is pitiful. But, when the two get together, Ah! There’s a possibility of success. I support The BOOKUP and let us all say, ‘Here’s to The BOOKUP’!”
