Libraries relate reading to wine

Call it the perfect date: you, your comfy chair, soft light, a good book and a glass of wine. Lap-warming cat or dog optional. In fact, wine is optional, as long as you have a good book. That's what North Idaho Reads has been promoting for five years. North Idaho Reads is a collaborative effort by libraries in Kootenai, Bonner and Shoshone counties. Partially funded through statewide grants, its mission is to encourage reading by partnering with local organizations, schools, businesses, etc., with a range of programs centered on a theme. This year, the theme is near and dear to our palates: wine! That's meant pairing with local artists, wineries and especially authors to present workshops, demonstrations, presentations, and book discussions throughout October/Carrie Scozzaro, Inlander.

Question: Does a good book and a glass of wine sound good to you?
