New Meetup: Meetup Six : The Dharma Bums

Announcing a new Meetup for The Williamsburg Modern Lit Book Club!

What: Meetup Six : The Dharma Bums

When: Tuesday, August 17,[masked]:00 PM

Where: McCarren Park
Driggs Avenue & Lorimer Street
Greenpoint, NY 11222

Hey team! So after talking with Celia, I've decided to take over experimentally for the rest of the summer - hope things turn out well!

So my first pick is Jack Kerouac's classic The Dharma Bums - I've never actually read it myself, but it seems like a good choice for a summer read. I'm hoping to have some interesting discussion contrasting the presentation in the novel of the youth generation to today's modern social movements.

key meetup facets:
- be zen
- dress beat
- bring something (food/drink/anti-establishment attitude)



If no one seems interested in this book, please suggest one! I kinda picked this on a whim.
