What we're about

****Note: What makes us DIFFERENT-

This isn't a typical book club. In fact, one of our members confided that she never refers to this meetup as a 'book club'. She prefers describing it something like, 'a group of people who get together and talk about books'. We're independent readers who are curious about just about anything. Instead of agreeing on one book to read for each meeting, we each read whatever we want, then share with the rest of the group. Our discussions are always fresh and interesting! Books we've talked about cover a wide range of subjects; some example topics include being lost at sea, the history of salt,why some technological developments should make us optimistic about the future of the planet, creativity at Pixar, neuroplasticity, American sub-cultures, extreme sports, north African religious history, biographies and much much much much more.****

Have you read a non-fiction book lately? Come and tell us about it! This relaxed and friendly book group is for those who enjoy reading non-fiction, asking questions, and having thought provoking, fun discussions on a wide variety of topics. Read whatever you want, then come and spend a few minutes discussing it with us. No formal book reports- don’t worry! Paper books, e-books and audio books are all considered ‘books’ for the purposes of this group :)

We’re meeting at Ginkgo Coffeehouse in St. Paul (there's a free parking lot in back). If it’s at all possible for you, please consider buying something to drink or eat when you arrive (they have vegan and gf options, BTW), to ensure that we’ll be welcome to use Ginkgo’s space again. Looking forward to meeting you!
