So Here's the Tea...
Come out and enjoy my very first FREE social book event coming this May! I am super excited to launch this event + meet all of you! So many people have already started asking me, "What's The Book Exchange?" I came up with The Book Exchange as a way to spark conversation through the exchanging of books! What better way to get to know someone than by mingling and networking, while also sharing an awesome book that you're reading? Reading and writing has always been my first loves and it is such an amazing feeling to create an event so fun, fresh, and most of all, S O C I A L! I want everyone who comes to let your hair down, mingle, eat some good brunch, and share a mimosa ON ME! :) I will also be showcasing my NEW thebookspotbykg T-shirt colors at my event, so you don't want to miss it! (You will be able to place your order at this event as well!) Check below for more details!
Q: What is this event about?
A: The Book Exchange is a FREE social book event open to the public that I created as a way for guests to spark conversation, mingle, and interact with one another through the exchanging of books! It is a great way to network, as well as bonding with new people within the community!
Q: What was your inspiration behind this event?
A: I created this event from attending an awesome event in Durham called The Silent Book Club. Yes, a silent book club! I was so intrigued by the title + the flyer that I had to go! It was so amazing because you bring your own book, read silently in this kinda run down cafe, and then after, mingle about the book you're reading! This sparked my idea for The Book Exchange, because I had never been to an event like it before, and I wanted to create something new, fun, and memorable right in my own home for people to enjoy!
Q: When is this event?
A: May 5, 2018! Save the date!
Q: Where will this event be held?
A: The Book Exchange will be held at Apartments at Palladian Place clubhouse outside by the pool! The address is 260 Leigh Farm Rd Durham, NC 27707. To enter, make sure to park by the front entrance or around back by the pool! Can't wait to meet you! :)
Q: What time does the event start?
A: This event starts at 12pm and goes until 4pm! If you can't get enough of us, feel free to join us for tacos + tequila at Flying Burrito in Raleigh, NC in honor of Cinco de Mayo! :)
Q: Will there be food?
A: Yes! There will be brunch style food items at this event, as well as mimosas, but ONLY while supplies last, so GET THERE EARLY! :)
Q: Do I need to bring a book to come to this event?
A: Y E S! In order to enter, you MUST have a book of some kind! Please let it be a book that you've read and don't mind giving away to someone to read! This allows for more conversation, and plus you'll be able to share your thoughts on what made the book great or not so great, and why you're giving it away! Also, you CANNOT leave with the same book that you came in with. Remember, the goal is to mingle, eat, and share a cocktail :)
Q: What is the dress code?
A: Be yourself! Remember, you are at an event, so dress accordingly :) I always like to say cute + comfortable is always the best way to go!
Q: Will there be giveaways?
A: Y E S! I love going to events that have giveaways, so I wanted to create that atmosphere for my event! There will be two giveaways! One towards the beginning of the event, and one towards the end! Every guest will sign in by writing their name on a sticky note, and I will place it in my special giveaway jar! In order to win, you MUST be present when your name is called! You don't want to miss it! :)
Q: I really want some thebookspotbykg apparel! Will I be able to order at this event?
A: Of course you can! I will be showcasing my new thebookspotbykg T-shirt colors, plus the originals for spring, and they will be available to order! For women, in my shirts, make sure to go up a size! Men, your standard shirt size is okay! I want to make sure that everyone has the perfect fit! I will be glad to help size you at any time throughout the event!
Q: Can I bring friends?
A: YES! The more the merrier! I want everyone who can come to enjoy themselves, so tell a friend to tell a friend! :) My event is open to everyone!
I hope this answered most of your questions! I am really excited to launch this event, and I can't wait to meet all of you! Don't forget to share + tell a friend! Let's mingle, have fun, and share a cocktail! Hey, it's always 5 o'clock somewhere :) See you there!
