This group was inspired by Susan Cain's book "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking".

The group's goal will be to have quiet fun. Because we are all introverts, no one will expect anyone to be the life of the party, or even to talk if you don't feel like it. We will go out and hang out, quietly. Future Meetups might include a movie night, bike rides or long walks in the forest preserve, and eating together--brunch, dinner, potlucks. Ideas are welcome! Hopefully we will make some new friends along the way.
