About Your Host

Dawnshaeé Reid

Dawnshaeé Reid is the Founder of Intro to Eclecticism and the Eclectix the Book Club Host. Dawnshaeé is a Louisville, KY native who found her love for reading and community building early on in life. Marrying the two passions together in 2020 became a seamless effort as she formed a digital community through her Instagram and blog, Intro to Eclecticism. Taking time to recognize the uniqueness in individuals, it has become easier to understand human behavior as it applies to reading. Cultivating a virtual book club space that embraces the eclectic beauty of each member has proven the power of community building through literature since the creation of Eclectix the Book Club in 2021.

Resting on 150 acres, River Mountain is bordered by Sweet Root Creek, Warrior Ridge and Tussey Mountain. River Mountain's stunning spaces are designed for reflection, mindfulness, and good vibrations on your self-care journey. Creekside yoga platforms, a restored barn turned wellness space, and the calm of nature make this the ideal destination for peace and wellness.

Located just a few hours from D.C., Baltimore, and Pittsburgh, in the mountains of Pennsylvania, River Mountain is remote yet easy to access.
