Book Club #3

  • July 10, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Lori's House

This book covers the Middle Ages, Epicureanism, palimpsests, self-flagellation, evolution, bookworms, the meaning of life, pleasure, atoms, Vesuvius, hypocrisy and the void. It has something for everyone!!!

Meet on an occasional basis to discuss a book. The host selects the date, time, number of people and decides if they will serve any food or drinks. I will serve a summer dessert, unsweet tea and wine. My book is The Swerve: How the World Became Modern by Stephen Greenblatt. We'll discuss THE WHOLE BOOK for this final of three meetings. The first half hour or so will be for socializing. Due to space limitations I'll cap this at 12 people. Here's a review of the book: http://www.npr.org/2011/09/20/140463632/the-swerve-ideas-that-rooted-the-renaissance

    So far we have myself, Kristy Gonzalez, Mike Bucki and Sam McCandless coming to our final discussion of how the Swerve made the world modern. Care to join us? The whole book is up for discussion, and dessert is TBD.

    A REMINDER that anyone can suggest a new book and host a Book Club get together for Sunday Assembly. Just Select a date and time, and number of chapters for your first meeting. (This group is not good at reading a whole book in 4 weeks.) It doesn't have to be non-fiction, it could be any genre and book that you want to share with Assemblers.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
