Hi everyone, I am thrilled that so many people have shown interest in this group (59 members so far) and I am really looking forward to meeting all of you.
Because we have such a small monthly meet-up of only 12 people - please note the RSVP policy. Anyone who RSVP's yes and fails to show is going to be removed from the group. If you need to change your RSVP to No, please do so ASAP so that someone else can take your spot (currently 8 people are waitlisted for the first meeting). If you are sick, if you have to work late, I assume you still have access to a computer! In a group of this size, several no-shows can really mess up the event.
sooo.... I hope you all have a great holiday and I hope some of you are enjoying "The Rainbow" as I am. :)
I'm hoping to combine two things that I love: Literature and discussion about literature that takes place in a relaxed cafe atmosphere (nothing too fancy here & drinking is optional). A nice way to meet other literature lovers and smart conversationalists.
Come and join the fun and expand your horizons a bit when it comes to literature! I need motivation at times to complete my reading list and maybe you do too? I'm a fan of classic literature (think Aeschylus, Dostoyevsky, Mann, Balzac, Cervantes, Goethe, Hardy, Faulkner) who has a special fondness for modernist and postmodernist writing (e.g., Brautigan, Broch, Breton, Celine, Kundera, Joyce, Rilke, Woolf, Zamyatin, Pynchon, Acker, Cortazar, Ellison, Pamuk, Calvino, Kluge, Garcia-Marquez). If you, like me, are also a fan of thought-provoking foreign/experimental 'art' cinema, you should check out my Radical Visions Cinema Club: http://www.meetup.com/radical-visions-cinema
