What we're about

This new bookclub is for people who are interested in lots of things in the world, be it Culture, Society, Politics, Economics, Psychology or Adventure, and love discussing ideas and learn from likeminded others. Each month we dive deep into a topic with a book that is picked by members from three curated options.

October Book Club - Lost connections by Johann Hari

The Non-Fiction Book Club is for people who are interested in lots of things in the world, be it Culture, Society, Politics, Economics, Psychology or Adventure, and love discussing these topics and learn from likeminded others.

*How does it work?*
Each month has a theme with three curated non-fiction book options, and the book that we will read is selected by all of us. The theme for October is being well with ourselves and others around us.

Why do we often struggle to ask for help and how might we overcome this? How does the way society changed might have an impact on our mental health and how does forging connections help? What does vulnerability have to do with fear, grief, and disappointment, and how could it be the key to joy and a sense of belonging?

**Voting is closed for this month**

This is an international bookclub, hence the language of the discussions will be English. However, all books are available both in English and Hungarian (and usually many other languages), no matter if you would prefer to read a book in your native language or practice another.

*Where will we meet?*
Each month we will pick a venue somewhere central in Budapest to meet up for a stimulating discussion and a drink! This time it will be Hadik (indoors if guidelines permit, will post an update here)

November Book Club - Vote for the book!

VAJ

The Non-Fiction Book Club is for people who are interested in lots of things in the world, be it Culture, Society, Politics, Economics, Psychology or Adventure, and love discussing these topics and learn from likeminded others.

*How does it work?*
Each month has a theme with three curated non-fiction book options, and the book that we will read is selected by all of us. The theme for November is 'Wisdom', choosing from three autobiographies of people who had an undoubtedly adventurous life.

How did a grassroot activist end up becoming the 44th president of the United States? What changes could one observe to our planet in just one human lifespan? What reflections does a Hollywood actor offer on life, ethics and adventure?
