VSDC Book Club discusses "Quiet" by Susan Cain

  • May 29, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please join the Vegetarian Society of DC Book Club discussion of Susan Cain's Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking.

To participate you must read at least half the book -- and RSVP at least two days before the meeting. If your plans change, PLEASE update your RSVP!

    Beth was an excellent facilitator and I really enjoyed the diverse reviews and reactions to Susan's book. Look forward to meeting you all again on future events.

    This was the first time I attended a VSDC Book Club event and it was great fun. I really enjoyed the conversation at our table and getting to know so many new folks. Beth did an excellent job organizing the event and I appreciated her facilitation style.

    I met Susan Cain when she spoke at Sixth & I. She's brilliant and her book is groundbreaking.

    Amy idea of the location? I'll have to cancel if not metro-accessible or if I don't find a ride. Peace...
