What we're about

Are you a person who finds joy in reading non-fiction books like biographies, memoirs, socially conscious subjects, inspirational journeys, culture, etc? My goal is to explore new and intriguing topics, expand our knowledge, get to know interesting authors, and maybe introduce ourselves to areas of the world we've never heard of before. Discover parts of humanity we didn't know existed, or just really don't know much about. Often we live our lives in our own worlds that are narrowly defined by our own thoughts and belief systems. There is an endless opportunity for learning through books. I hope to gain a new perspective through reading, discussion, and the life experiences of other people. I hope you'll join me for this exciting new adventure!

Reading Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari 1ST HALF

Sapiens, the book, takes us on a breath-taking ride through our entire human history, from its evolutionary roots to the age of capitalism and genetic engineering, to uncover why we are the way we are. Sapiens focuses on key processes that shaped humankind and the world around it, such as the advent of agriculture, the creation of money, the spread of religion and the rise of the nation state. **For this meeting we'll only discuss the first two parts. It's a lot to digest, so I thought it would be easier if we tackled it in two meetings** Please feel free to join us whether you read, or even enjoyed the book, or not. We often have members attend who didn't get a chance to finish, but still want to contribute. Also, please feel free to offer ideas for books to read. We've had some really good ideas from suggestions. See you soon!
