January Book Club

Due to busy schedules during the month of December, we will resume book club meetings in January.

We will be reading "The Great Agnostic: Robert Ingersoll and American Freethought" by Susan Jacoby.

Please join the Beltway Atheist Shelfari site if you attend this meetup (http://www.shelfari.com/groups/43229/about). The Shelfari site contains more information about the book club, allows for online discussion, and allows a say in the books we read.

    Another great book discussion, though the group leader could have been better ;-)

    Anyone want to be the discussion leader for January? Just means putting together a few questions to get us talking and helping us get back on track if we wander too far off the trail. Just thought I'd offer it up to anyone who is interested :)

    Maybe I'm missing it because I'm looking at the mobile version, but is there a specific book that we will discuss at the meet up? Really hope I can make it!

    What is the format of this meeting? What happen when you come together?

      Chris, we usually start with brief introductions, if there are new people. Then, if someone has something they want to talk about regarding the book, we start there. Otherwise, I have a list of questions to use as conversation starters. It's pretty informal :)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
