This club's purpose is to promote intellectual curiosity, and friendly community, by reading widely, and discussing respectfully, nonfiction books- biographies, history, travel, economics, politics, science, and more. We meet once a month, on Sunday, in Manhattan. Everyone is welcome as long as you are willing to make a good faith effort to read the book so that your comments will add value to the conversation. Come join us for rousing discussions, and be not afraid of passionate debates!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
