Book Exchange at the Grain Exchange
Tuesday, October 31, 9:00am—10:30amMinneapolis - Downtown
Join us for coffee, networking, and a new book. You know that book that changed the way you think about business, taught you a new skill, or brought you back to the basics? Maybe you’ve read about someone else’s experience and it changed the way you were dealing with your business challenges? Or perhaps you just plain enjoyed the writing. Regardless, we want you to share!
Here’s how it works. Just show up with your book of choice. We’ll have you write your name in the front cover and why the book had an impact on you. Everyone will give a mini pitch about their book and we’ll open up the floor to grab your new book. You’ll be tasked with seeking out the original owner of the book and chatting about it.
