Re: [DarwinsTavern] DT Book Discussion Series

I would think it would be better to focus on one book for 6 weeks, but do chapter batches. What do you think Wade? anybody else?
 
If for example the group read and discussed Doubt a History, we could do 2 chapters each session. Therefore, we would have 5 sessions to cover theat book. I don't think any book should be discussed for more than 6. I woul only want to discuss more than 2 chapters at a time if the chapters are not very long.  I think we should play it by ear and see how things go.

Wow, looked at the book on amazon.  It's a "longie."  Since you talk about the discussion as a "series," do you mean we would take Doubt in chapter batches or do you mean that we'd have a new book on the topic of skepticism at every discussion?

I have decided between july 4th- Aug 31 Tues nights wont do for me. If that day is best for everybody else, I understand and will sit out for the book discussions.

This is interesting idea. Does this mean that we would meet every 3 weeks like we do for the house discussions that we currently have? They would be on a different night and addition to, not in place of correct?

We use to meet as a group on Thursdays, so maybe that day would be okay. However, it should not be the Thursday during the same week we have our other discussions.

Mondays are okay with me also, but not the 3rd monday of the month. Tuesdays are also okay, but I know some people in the group attend the atheist meetings on the 2nd tuesday of the month? Fri are okay, but we have to choose an off friday or eliminate one of the current bar/restaurant fridays.



Unfortunately, I don't have an adequate place to host (would if I could). Therefore, we would need to find somebody(s) willing to host on those days. If we do go along with having a topic series discussion would it be set at one persons place or would it change?
sorry for being overly analytical, but lets say we have a discussion on a book for   6 weeks (never mind who the host is), would it be the same leader discussing the book each time, or would it be a different leader discussing the book a few chapters at a time?

I would participate if it were wed, thur, or fridays.  If so, I could also host as needed.

Thanks,

I like reading, and would participate (not familiar w/ the book, but interested). For me, Tuesday or Friday nights would work.

Hello again primates!

Vince and I have an idea.  We're wondering if our group would want to do a discussion series with a common theme.  We think we could use a book like Doubt, A History by Jennifer Hecht.  We would probably meet every three weeks in a home.  We don't know what night.  We are thinking that we would ask for some level of commitment from people to try to make most of the discussions in the series.  The whole series would probably last something like six or eight meetups.  Please let us know your thoughts on this.  Does this sound like something you would like to do?  If so, what evening during the week would work best for you?  Post your replies on the discussion on the web site or just reply to this email. 

By the way, thanks Vince for your willingness to serve as an event organizer.  Welcome the leadership team!
