Landmine Book Club
andmine Book Club (LBC) was created from the depths of COVID boredom, despair, and desire for human interaction. After months of hunker downs and endless mind-numbing zooms, we wanted to figure out a way to be more constructive with our time at home while also fostering conversation among a diverse group of people from across Alaska, and beyond! Landmine Book Club is run by Landmine Editor-in-Chief Jeff Landfield and his (good) buddy Kati Capozzi!
There in only rule at LBC: absolutely NO fiction. One of the two founders absolutely detests fiction books. We’ll read one book a month, and meet on the third Wednesday of each month for discussion. For now, the meetings are being held virtually over Zoom. If you’d like to join the Landmine Book Club, sign up below.
