Hello all, I would like to recruit some volunteers to organize a meetup in September - please let me know if you are interested. This would be great for me to take some time off and focus on other things. You can read whatever you want and go wherever you want, but must be committed to actually show up.
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
