What snacks should I serve at book club?

Hi! I'm hosting a book club meeting next week and am planning to serve light snacks (and wine!). I'd like the snacks to be savory and easy to eat, since there are a bunch of us. Any ideas?

Thank you all for your suggestions! All the cheese mentions led me to...ricotta toasts with jam! P.S. In case it's of any interest, we read "Educated" by Tara Westover, and I couldn't put it down.

I read an article about Tara Westover right before her book was published. It was a riveting interview too. Looks like I’m heading to the library this week :)

Are there any light snacks that would complement the story lines of the book(s) you will be discussing? Southern writer or story: cheese straws, pimento cheese and crackers, etc. English setting: cucumber sandwiches, shortbread cookies....

Definitely finger food:
-rollups (with lavash or tortilla), made with maybe some hummus and Mediterranean pickles or olives, cut into bite-size pieces.
-gougeres or pao de queijo
-cheese straws (the Southern ones)
-grissini wrapped with a little prosciutto

Anything non greasy to pick up (all around or minimum one side).
Canapes or crackers.
Stuffed small tomatoes
Dried plums or apricots stuffed with nuts or cheese
Fresh fresh fresh nuts in the shell
