Don't miss the inaugural trip of the #KBBTravelingBookClub! Join us March 22nd through the 24th for a fun and unique reader experience! We had numerous people tell us that they'd love to go, but just couldn't make the originally planned weekend, so we've rescheduled to a new date.
Central to the trip is a discussion of The River at Night by Erica Ferencik and a Skype visit with the author (cell service allowing). In keeping with the feel of this wilderness survival thriller, we are staying in cabins along the Frio River. We will also be kayaking*, checking out fall foliage at a nearby state park, and antiquing for the less wilderness-loving, more shop-loving of us. In between activities, you can relax and enjoy the company of other book lovers in gorgeous surroundings.
*This trip is rain or shine, so in the event of inclement weather, board and card games will replace kayaking.
EVERYTHING IS INCLUDED FOR ONE PRICE:
- The book The River at Night, and a Skype discussion with the author
- Home-cooked meals
You really only need to bring your clothes, toiletries, and it is BYOB!

Otherwise, the reservation fee is nonrefundable. Adults only for this trip.
We will be departing the Katy area at noon, but we will be picking attendees up from their Katy-area location of choice, so your pickup time may be as early as 10 AM.

A “raw, relentless, and heart-poundingly real” (Ruth Ware, New York Times bestselling author) thriller set against the harsh beauty of the Maine wilderness, The River at Night charts the journey of four friends as they fight to survive the aftermath of a white water rafting accident.
Winifred Allen needs a vacation.
Stifled by a soul-crushing job, devastated by the death of her beloved brother, and lonely after the end of a fifteen-year marriage, Wini is feeling vulnerable. So when her three best friends insist on a high-octane getaway for their annual girls’ trip, she signs on, despite her misgivings.
What starts out as an invigorating hiking and rafting excursion in the remote Allagash Wilderness soon becomes an all-too-real nightmare; a freak accident leaves the women stranded, separating them from their raft and everything they need to survive. When night descends, a fire on the mountainside lures them to a ramshackle camp that appears to be their lifeline. But as Wini and her friends grasp the true intent of their supposed saviors, long buried secrets emerge and lifelong allegiances are put to the test. To survive, Wini must reach beyond the world she knows to harness an inner strength she never knew she possessed.
With intimately observed characters and visceral prose, The River at Night “will leave you gasping, your heart racing, eyes peering over your shoulder to see what follows from behind” (Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author). This is a dark exploration of creatures—both friend and foe—that you won’t soon forget.
