NMRX: A new kind of book club

NMRX Book clubInterested in learning about new titles and opportunities to connect with authors and readers while on the go? The New Mexico Rail Runner Express is now offering a unique way to do so!

The NMRX Book Club provides a new and creative portal to engage commuters, bridge the gap between authors, and increase their visibility in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and surrounding communities. Benefits of the book club include:

  • 55% discount on each digital copy

October’s title is Germaine the Beetle by Janice M. Lovato of Los Alamos, N.M. Germaine the Beetle is a children’s story depicting the courage a young beetle finds to save his family from a disaster.

The book club’s first signature event will be held this Saturday, October 25. The event will be held on the NMRX trains #703 (departs Santa Fe Depot at 10:44 a.m.) and #704 (departs downtown ABQ at 1:42 p.m.). Ride with author Janice M. Lovato as she reads Germaine the Beetle during the ride.

Children are encouraged to dress in costumes (Halloween or otherwise). There will be a costume contest and other great activities!
