Our monthly discussion group is organized by Cape Fear's Going Green and hosted by Old Books on Front Street. The group welcomes new members and one-time visitors.

We meet the first Tuesday evening of the month inside the bookstore. Social time is at 5:30, discussion begins at 6:00 and runs approximately 90 minutes or so. The bookstore closes at 8:00 p.m. There's no long-term commitment: you can come when the book being discussed is a title that interests you! (We do hope you'll read the book before you come, as it enriches the conversation.)

Book Signing Patch of Dirt

Richard Lutman is the author of PATCH OF DIRT: A Big Sky Romance Novel. PATCH OF DIRT reimagines and modernizes the mythology and fascination many readers have with the American Western frontier, often represented by both a barren landscape and a romanticized idealistic way of living with self-reliant, strong-willed men. His novel vividly captures a particular place and way of life, while also telling a modern story about heartache, hard knocks, and hope.
