We meet to discuss nonfiction books in a wide variety of genres--science, history, memoir, politics, and beyond! Members can suggest books at any time. We will vote (bi-monthly) on four options and the top two choices will become the next books respectively for two consecutive months.
Dues are $6 per year to cover the costs of organizing through Meetup.
