Freethought Sundays: Cordova Book Club

Join the book discussion!

Visit the book club webpage at

http://www.memphisfreethought.com/BookClub.html

 

The process for selecting reading materials:

BOOKS: Book club members will vote on books two weeks before finishing the current one. These votes will be casted at the book club meeting two weeks before beginning the new book to allow time to order it. Also, people can vote with an absentee vote by emailing Jason Grosser at [masked]. (Please, write in the "subject" of your email "Book Club Vote".)

BETWEEN BOOKS: Regular members will pick short papers (essays, chapters, magazine articles, etc) that are 50 or fewer pages to read and discuss at one--and only one--meeting. Again, these paper discussions will occur between books. These short papers will (we hope) add variety to the discussion topics without committing people to an entire book.

    I think I am going to have to back out today due to work. I have to go in to catch up. I should be there next week for sure. Sorry for missing two weeks in a row. :(

      Instead? That is not logical.

      It's a date, coffee first, then a movie. That trumps book club. Fascinating ;)
