One of my new favorite books, QUEEN OF THE ROAD by Doreen Orion is the latest pick for the Adventure at Every Turn, a Book Club by Celestial Seasonings (which I first mentioned here.) I loved this book -- you can read my review here. The Celestial Seasonings site gives ideas for appropriate tea selections, cocktails and recipes to serve at your QUEEN OF THE ROAD book club meeting as well as decorating ideas and other activities. In addition, there is a contest going on for the best Queen of the Road iced tea drink recipe.
Another opportunity that I intend to take advantage of is the chance to submit a question for an exclusive webcast featuring Ms. Orion. If your question is selected, you will win a signed copy of QUEEN OF THE ROAD and a $50 gift basket featuring Celestial Seasonings teas and other goodies. You must submit your question by July 31, 2008 to be eligible -- so get reading.
If you are interested in having Ms. Orion "appear" at your book club meeting (via speakerphone of course, unless you're nearby), you can invite her through this link on her website. You can also read the discussion questions while you there!
Note: If it's not enough that Celestial Seasonings selected QUEEN OF THE ROAD for their book club, I just found out that Borders also chose it as a Featured Book Club Selection for June!
