Flatland is a classic novella about a society of 2-dimensional shapes (the narrator is a square). Around 80 pages, it's a pretty brisk read and is full of mathematical jokes and social satire. We could dive into this following the "book club" model. Everyone would read the book ahead of time and then we'd gather at a bar or some such to chat about it. The book has been in the public domain for a while now, so you can probably find a copy of the text online. But make sure you find a version with the illustrations! Some of the cheap versions strip out all the original drawings, which are absolutely essential. I bought my copy off Amazon for 2 bucks:
