Place: Author Autograph Gallery OR Starry Night Room (both in basement)

Leader:  Hannah Reidell

Come try out Watermark's book club devoted to award winners! We read books that have been short-listed or have won awards across different genres, primarily fiction but occasionally non-fiction and even poetry.  "And the Winner Is... " meets at 10:00 a.m. on the third Thursday of each month and is led by Watermark bookseller Hannah  Reidell who arrived in Wichita via the UK and Japan.  A lifelong lover of books, she is happiest when reading or talking about books.  


A Short Introduction to And The Winner Is...: 

And the Winner Is...Book Club exposes readers to lesser-known prize-winning books (both fiction and non-fiction) as well as exploring the major award winners that everyone is discussing.  Our members tend to be eclectic readers who don't mind taking a chance on a new author or book. Even if you didn't care for the book, your understanding of it will broaden.  We value all interpretations and encourage a wide-ranging discussion.
