Walking Book Club

What is a Walking Book Club?

The Walking Book Club is a little like a regular book club, except you visit places and sites, if possible, in the book that is selected for the month.  Then after the walk, you stop to have lunch and discuss the book.

The benefits of a Walking Book Club is that it covers three essential elements to maintaining a healthy lifestyle – mental, physical and social activity.

The book is selected ahead of time giving you a chance to read it and information for the walk is listed.

November Book Recommendation

Tangled Vines: Greed, Murder, Obsession and an Arsonist in the Vineyards of California by Frances Dinkelspiel – On October 12, 2005, a massive fire broke out in the Wines Central wine warehouse in Vallejo, California. Within hours, the flames had destroyed 4.5 million bottles of California’s finest wine worth more than $250 million, making it the largest destruction of wine in history. The fire had been deliberately set by a passionate oenophile named Mark Anderson. Anderson annihilated entire California vineyard libraries as well as bottles of some of the most sought-after wines in the world. Among the priceless bottles destroyed were 175 bottles of Port and Angelica from one of the oldest vineyards in California made by Frances Dinkelspiel’s great-great grandfather, Isaias Hellman, in 1875.

Please join us on Sunday, November 21 in Mill Valley at 10:00am. We will walk to Sausalito where some important events in the book took place. Along the way, we’ll find a place to eat and have our book discussion.
