Visitors to Church Street Coffee and Books in Mountain Brook’s Crestline Village may notice a new display next to the counter. Organizers of TEDxBirmingham formally announced a partnership with the popular bookstore early Monday morning. “Ideas Worth Reading” will be a monthly reading list curated by TEDxBirmingham speakers, with those recommended titles being featured in-store.
The current selection is courtesy of Graham Boettcher, the chief curator at the Birmingham Museum of Art; Chris Hastings, owner and executive chef of the Hot and Hot Fish Club; Jan Mattingly, founder and chief education officer at Dynamic Education Adventures; and Laura Kate Whitney, co-founder of Dogtrot Studio.
The three-year old coffee house/bookstore’s co-owner, Cal Morris, shared with us last week that they’d also agreed to set up shop at TEDxBirmingham’s February 28 event, titled “Move Mountains,” to be held once again at the Alys Stephens Center per a report on AL.com from late June. Tickets for their September 15 salon, “Ripples,”
will be made available starting today (September 2) at 12 p.m are now sold out, though there is a waitlist available via the same link.
