Tired of all those awful pickup lines, like "Can I have your number? I seem to have lost mine."Well, on Saturday, June 16, 6:00 p.m. lit loving singles will gather at the Thornhill Branch for Literary Speed Dating. Participants are invited to bring a book, one which they enjoyed, hated, or are simply mystified by, and discuss it. Each participant will have 4-5 minutes to chat, and then move on to the next "mini-date." While this event is aimed at adults in their 20s and 30s, all are welcome to attend. Matches will contacted after the event. It's a safe way to meet people without the hassle of dating sites or bad pick up lines. We will be hosting another event, Literary Speed Dating Event for Boomers on Saturday, July 14.
