On November 5, 2013, owner of Tubby & Coo's, Candice Huber, launched a reading series called Reading Between the Wines at Pearl Wine Co. in Mid-City as part of Fleur de Lit, Candice's literary events website. For the first year, Candice was happy and proud to partner with Maple Street Book Shop for book selling at the events. Beginning with the first event this year on Feb. 4, 2015, Tubby & Coo's will be taking over as the book seller.
Reading Between the Wines is a laid back, salon-type environment where we drink wine, eat cheese, and talk to local authors about their books. The event takes place on the first Wednesday evening of every month at Pearl Wine Co. inside of the American Can Company from 7:00-8:00 PM. Pearl offers wines by the glass for $5, and we offer lively conversation with amazing authors and great reads.
