Library Book Club featured book for May is ‘Cork Dork’ 

–On Thursday, May 17, from 7-8 p.m., join the library’s Book Club for a discussion of Cork Dork.

Book synopsis:

Tech reporter Bianca Bosker stumbles upon an alternate universe where taste reigns supreme, a world in which people can, after a single sip of wine, identify the grape it was made from, in what year, and where it was produced down to the exact location, within acres. Astounded by their fanatical dedication and seemingly superhuman sensory powers, Bosker abandons her screen-centric life and sets out to discover what drives their obsession and whether she, too, can become a cork dork.

Funny, counter-intuitive, and compulsively readable, Cork Dork illuminates not only the complex web of wine production and consumption but how tasting better can change our brains and help us live better.

The Library’s Book Club meets monthly throughout the year. For more information, call Karen Christiansen at 805-237-3870.

The Paso Robles City Library is located at 1000 Spring Street and is open Monday – Friday 10-8, and Saturday 10-5. For more information on library programs and events, call (805) 237-3870 or visit
