The Gig Harbor Literary Society is celebrating a successful fall program and the holiday season by hosting a Book and Cookie Swap on Dec. 8.
Originally, the program was not scheduled to host a December event because of how hectic the holidays often are for many people, but plans changed as requests for a holiday meet-up poured in, said Alphild Dick, marketing & events coordinator for the Harbor History Museum.
“We want people to continue to have really fun and positive experiences with this group,” Dick said. “One of the joys of this group is the conversation.”
Instead of assigning a book to the December event, Dick and Karen Brooks, branch manager of the Gig Harbor Pierce County Library, decided instead to have a more casual gathering featuring favorite holiday treats.
It was Brooks’ idea to host a book swap, with attendees bringing a favorite book to exchange, Dick said.
“This is a great chance to share our books with the community,” she said.
The discussion, a key component to the literary society, will focus more generally on holiday themes and the group’s shared love of reading.
The early 2017 reading schedule for the Gig Harbor Literary Society has already been decided. The January book is “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” by Maria Semple for the 6 p.m. Jan. 10 meeting.
Book and Cookie Swap
The Gig Harbor Literary Society Book and Cookie Swap will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 8 at the Harbor History Museum, 4121 Harborview Drive.
