Locals Only Book Club
We’ve joined efforts with popular Oak Cliff bookshop, The Wild Detectives, to bring you the best books by local authors. Introducing the most Dallasite of all book clubs: the LOCALS ONLY book club! A book club at Klyde Warren Park featuring local favorites handpicked by, The Wild Detectives. Grab a glass of wine and a spot underneath a tree in the Dallas Morning News Reading & Games Room for a series of unforgettable evenings.
We’re starting with Mourner’s Bench, a fantastic novel by Sanderia Faye about a girl of color coming of age in Arkansas during the times of the civil rights movement.
Pick your copy from Wild Detectives (or anywhere else) and join us, and the author, on April 10, for an open discussion about the book, at The Dallas News Reading and Games Room in Klyde Warren Park.
