One of Two F.P. Book Clubs Ends Hiatus
SIOUX FALLS, SD—March 14, 2014—“Friends of Dale Carnegie,” the Fresh Produce creative team’s book club, will end its eight-month hiatus next week when they meet to discuss Stefan Sagmeister’s Things I Have Learned in My Life So Far.
Fresh Produce’s account service team also has a book club, “Put a Spreadsheet On It,” which hasn’t met for nearly two years.
“Fresh Produce’s account service team also has a book club, which hasn’t met for nearly two years.”
“It’s funny to think that the account service team’s book club actually predates [the creative team’s],” said Fresh Produce writer Brian Bieber. “Anyone could be forgiven for assuming that the creative team’s club has been around much, much longer, considering how many more books we’ve read [than the account service team].”
Since “Friends of Dale Carnegie” was founded in early 2012, the creative team has read more than four books, including Blink by Malcolm Gladwell, The Earth Moved by Amy Stewart, Half Empty by David Rakoff, and The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.
“If you count the one by Sagmeister that most of us have almost read, that’s five books,” said Bieber.
“The account service team’s book club has read one-half of one book.”
The account service team’s book club has read one-half of one book: How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie.
Fresh Produce co-founder Mike Hart IVwas cagey when asked about the status of the account service team’s book club, stating only, “the future is bright [for ‘Put A Spreadsheet On It’].”
Hart declined to explain why the club hasn’t met for over twenty-two months, though it might have something to do with his team occupying themselves with cultivating and enriching client relationships and revenue streams for Fresh Produce.
The Fresh Produce creative team is planning to read Flowers in the Attic next.
