Nonfiction Readers & Writers November Meetup

  • Nov 21, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi all,

We had a great meeting last month with a wide range of takes on October's articles.  This month I think we've got three interesting and distinct articles before everyone sets off to their holiday endeavors... Hope everyone can make it...


Here are the selections for this month:

What Lies Beneath by William Langewiesche, Vanity Fair, October 2013

Hidden City by Ian Frazier, The New Yorker, October 2013

Clear Eyes, Full Plates, Can't Puke by Jon Ronson & Brian Finke, GQ, November 2012


Here's a link to a readlist with all three stories.


See you in a couple weeks.  Happy reading...

- Matt

    I got the photo request too late! Good idea; sorry! On the other hand, he wrapped things up so fast there would barely have been time to snag a snapshot... See you all in December.

    Should we all adjourn to Flyleaf?

    Sorry for last minute cancel but the world of the surreal beckons: Ollie North is at Flyleaf!?! It will need to be seen to be believed.

    Hope to make it tonight. 50-50 chance I'll miss it, but would like to discuss the stories.

    A few weeks ago I was babysitting and channel surfing their enormous cable selection and was thrilled to find a show on a giant squid expedition from last summer. Steve O'Shea was there. I did not get to watch the whole thing but apparently they did get some actual footage of a giant squid:

    I'm sorry to be missing this group but I have a conflict on Thursday evenings this fall. Maybe in the spring….

      No worries Jane... we may not always do Thursdays, so hopefully we can see you soon...

    I'm sorry I won't be able to make it this week- out of town. I'm looking forward to next month's meeting!

      No worries, Maya... and thanks. November is always a tricky month for many people. Hope to see you in December!
