What we're about
We are a small, informal, non-fiction book group who meet roughly every couple of weeks and (in theory) discuss one book a month. Although a lot of it is just drinking beer and catching up.
With non-fiction virtually anything goes: Art, biographies/memoirs, psychology, ecology, politics, science, history, philosophy... the list goes on!
We meet at around 8pm on Mondays or Tuesdays, usually in the Blue Blazer on Spittal Street (near the Odeon on Lothian Road). The Blue Blazer has been our 'home' for several years now. It is a bustling pub, not a hushed shrine to the printed word, but it suits us. We are usually at the back of the back room. We try and to have some books on the table so you'll know who we are.
For the last few years we have been experimenting with an alternative venue, the Castle Arms (usually in the small room near the front entrance); please double check the event locations!
Come for the books, stay for the hygge (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Culture_of_Denmark#Hygge)!
