  • This location is no longer available

Our October non-fiction book selection is The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream, by Barack Obama. As with all of our book selections, you can find The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream at most libraries and used book stores. Of course, the author naturally will thank you for buying his book new. For more information about the book: http://en.wikipedia.o...

NEXT BOOK SELECTION:
Please vote on our November/December and December/January selections though the "Polls" function on the website. And please nominate books for future club selections by using our mailing list. OUR REGULAR MEETUP LOCATION:
The Denver Press Club has offered us the free 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 next to the building, however). The parking lot on the south corner is less expensive than the parking lot on the north corner.

SEE YOU on Thursday, October 23!

NOTE: Due to Thanksgiving, our "November" Meetup will be on December 4th. Watch this space for details.

    Was my first time so I thought it was great. Good facilitation and group discussion.
    Maybe next time we might even talk more about the book =)

    The Obama book was a great springboard for a far-reaching discussion about the origins of American democracy and the principles for self government.

    Great job finding us an alternative meeting spot on short notice. Very historically and politically informative meeting.

    There is always a good group dynamic and interesting points brought up that I may not have thought of otherwise just reading a book on my own.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
