Table for Ten

We call them Book Club Tables, but anyone can reserve a table for friends, family, or coworkers to enjoy Verse & Vino together.

Putting it Together: Behind the Scenes (all year) at Verse & Vino

Before the Verse & Vino committee recovers from one literary weekend, the dates are set for the next, and attention quickly turns to identifying, inviting, and confirming five featured authors. Karen Beach, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Foundation’s deputy director, spearheads this effort with a finesse she attributes to equal parts experience, tenacity, gut instinct, luck and timing.
