This is a book club with a kick! The main emphasis will be on reading and discussing books, but there will sometimes be movies to watch that (hopefully) compliment the book, and for madness a few surprises in the mix. On occasion, there will be authors stopping by to talk! And when "special" movies are shown at one of Chicago's great venues (The Music Box, Northwest Film Society, Siskel Film Center, etc.) you may be given a homework assignment to venture out and see the flick! I want as much input from members, as to what books and movies are of interest, times to meet, and locales. Initially they will take place at coffee shops that are easily accessible to the el and on the far Northside or in Evanston. Later sessions may meet at surprise times and locales - again your input is encouraged!
The aims of this group are- 1.) To read and discuss books that are collectively decided upon and 2.) Discover some incredible movie and book finds that may have escaped your notice and 3.) To make new friends. If you are looking to join a book club with an added dimension, and have fun, then this is the one for you.
