T-Dot Bookclub May Meetup

                                                   RSVP's OPEN ON APRIL 8th!

Hey hey Readers!

I hope you're ready for some pretty cool stuff!  Last month we had one of our big beautiful booky conversations about which books we should read in our upcoming months, and these two titles were presented, discussed and selected!  ...But it's been several weeks since that conversation and for the life of me I can't recall what the actual THEME is meant to be. 

I think it might have something to do with psychopaths.  You be the judge! 

Your books for May are:

The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America, by Erik Larson


The Wisdom of Psychopaths, by Kevin Dutton

Happy Reading!

If the RSVP list is full don't hesitate to jump on the waiting list.  You'll be surprised how fast the list turns over as the big day approaches (especially the last 24hrs!).  So if you DO wind up on the waiting list you'd better keep your calender clear.

Just a brief note on our methods and madness:

The point of choosing more then one book is to engage as many different tastes as possible.  The added bonus is that it gives us a platform for discussion - which is why the books we choose are always thematically similar.

We don't expect you to always have the time to read both monthly book selections.  You can rest assured that our conversations are so deliciously booky in general, that you really only need to be a lover of the written word to find something to get down and dirty with.

That said, its entirely up to you how much you're going to be bothered by spoilers, or discussion about books you haven't read, because we don't hold back!  [aka: SPOILER ALERT]

So if you want to come out - even if you haven't read the books - by all means c'mon out!   Even folks who haven't read any of the books on offer that month at all have left having had a great time!

* All of our books are chosen as a collective at each meeting. We're like the Borg that way.

    I read Devil in The Whit City years ago and loved it! A good reason to re-read it, and a good reason to make sure I get back to this group! Looking forward to it. :-)

    If anyone is looking for bonus reading material I can recommend The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson (also basically anything by Jon Ronson...) Non-fiction about how science measures psychopathy and how it manifests outside the stereotypes we see in fiction.
