Grand Traverse Distillery and Horizon Books are
announcing a collaboration, with a new book club:
“Books Distilled”.  On the 3rd Thursday of each
month, all interested parties will meet at the Grand
Traverse Distillery Tasting Room at 215 E. Front
Street at 7:00 pm.  Anyone is welcome to join the club!For the first meeting, which will be Thursday,
February 21, the book that attendees should read is
LOVE AND VODKA: MY SURREAL ADVENTURES IN UKRAINE, by
Michigan author R.J. Fox.  The author will be in
attendance.

In LOVE AND VODKA, Bobby is over the moon after
sharing a bike on the E.T. ride at Universal Studios
with Katya. Join our “intrepid crusader” as he takes
a leap of faith—traveling from comfortable
“have-a-nice day … and have-a-warm-shower” suburban
Detroit to Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine, the former center
of Cold War Soviet missile production. And
unbeknownst to anyone but himself, he’s bringing an
engagement ring! Experience life in a city that,
until the mid-1980s, was closed to foreign visitors.

Grand Traverse Distillery offers 5 different Vodkas,
so the discussion is bound to be punctuated by many
toasts!
