This group is for those who enjoy reading non-fiction books and then getting together for some intellectual discussion while hopefully making some new connections and friends. 

If you like learning new things and increasing your understanding of the world, this may be the group for you.

Please come join us for an hour or two of respectful conversation on a variety of topics. The book is meant to be a jumping off point. No idea is too crazy. No theory is too outlandish. There is no judgment here. Come, talk about what you've learned, what seemed right, what seemed wrong, and what it all means.
