July Nonfiction Meetup

Our July nonfiction book selection is A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose, by Eckhart Tolle. As with all of our book selections, you can find the selection at most libraries and used book stores. Of course, the author naturally will thank you for buying the book new. For Amazon information, click here: A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose, by Eckhart Tolle.

As ever, you do not need to read all or any of the book to participate in our lively discussion. We ask $3 at the door to cover Press Club usage and our Meetup.com fee. No one will be turned away.

Adapted from an Amazon.com Review - According to Tolle, who assumes the role of narrator as well, humans are on the verge of creating a new world by a personal transformation that shifts our attention away from our ever-expanding egos. This idea is well realized through Tolle's remarkably well-paced narration. Naturally, the author understands his material so thoroughly that he is able to convey it in an enjoyable manner, but Tolle's gentle tone and dialect begs his audience's attention simply through its straightforward approach. Something about this reading just seems profoundly important, whether one agrees with the material or not, and listeners' attention is sure to be captured within seconds of listening to Tolle's take on the universe in which we live. NEXT BOOK SELECTION:
Please vote on our August and September selections through the "Polls" function on the website. And please nominate books for future club selections by using our mailing list or by contacting Frances directly. OUR REGULAR MEETUP LOCATION:
The Denver Press Club has offered us the use of their historic facility in downtown Denver for our meetups. By group decision, we meet the FOURTH THURSDAY OF EVERY MONTH. As our Thanks, please patronize the establishment. The Press Club restaurant and bar opens at 5 PM, in case you wish to come early for dinner and possibly meet fellow readers or some of Denver's top journalists. We start our meeting at 7 PM. We're usually done by 8:30.

The oldest continuously operating press club in North America, the Denver Press Club is at 1330 Glenarm Place (across from the Denver Athletic Club). Parking: There are a few spaces behind the building in the alley and a few more angle-in spaces on the north side of the building between the Press Club and the Colorado Press Association (free after 5 PM). If these are full, there are on-street parking meters and parking lots on each corner of the block (avoid the monthly parking spaces directly south of the building, however). The parking lots on 13th Street ares less expensive than the parking lots on 14th Street.

SEE YOU on Thursday, July 22!

    Interesting concepts from the book and our skilled facilitator fueled a lively and thought provoking conversation. Though not all of the members contributed verbally, virtually all appeared interested in the spirited discussion. The only negative was that collecting fees from late comers was a bit disruptive to the conversation. Maybe a coin operated turn sty would reduce disruption ;-)

    I enjoyed the group: a bunch of seekers of the truth-which I appreciate.
    I also liked the way Judah Freed encouraged everyone to participate, that hasn't been my experience with other book groups.
