LAZY READERS NIGHT - AUGUST

  • August 24, 2012 · 7:00 PM

If you want to be with friends Friday night discussing the latest everybody's learning about philosophy, politics, science, psychology, religion, history - and you want to learn something new:

 

LAZY READERS:

For the nosy person who doesn’t have time to read it all but wants to know it all.

Bring whatever you've been reading, and come to discuss that and what everyone else is reading.  Subjects can includejust about anything from the above list: fiction or non-fiction.  Books or articles.  Come to talk or come to listen.  No pressure, just friendly fun.


RSVP above now.
(It helps us know how to set up.)

We 'll give anyone who wants 3-5 minutes to explain what they've been reading, and another 3-5 minutes for everyone to ask questions and discuss.  We always learn a ton.  Come make new friends and learn something new about what they’ve been reading.  It's the ultimate information exchange.

 

We'll start out with a 10- or 15-minute topical discussion (no more than that!).

Enjoy an evening with old friends, and make some new ones.


Come at 6:45 p.m. to get a good seat, to get to know folks, and to enjoy some coffee/dessert/dinner.


Green Mill or Callahan's afterward for more conversation.

SOME OF US REALLY LOVE BOOKS.

    Nonstop, informative, lively opinions batted back and forth for 2 hours that went by in what seemed to me like about ten minutes. Hope everyone felt they were treated fairly in getting a chance to have their say. I think the group as a whole is getting better at keeping a fast pace, with quickly summarized views, and occasional chances to explore a an idea in more depth, when warranted.

    So we learned from Jesse about Penn Jillette's "God, No!" (and "negligent eternal homicide"), from Ben a critique of "Atlas Shrugged," from me a summary of Higgs Boson articles, from John about "Civilization," from Morris about a 1200 BCE archeological find of (a copy of) the 10 commandments, from Don about "Rising IQ," - and I didn't write down the others that had to do with "Thinking Fast" and a recent Bill Maher blog. Ran out of time for Stealing Your Life" and a book of Ayn Rand interviews (sorry Helen!). But each made for thought-provoking discussion, continued afterward at the Green Mill.

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.

Rafaël, started French Conversation Group
