Next Meetup

Long Read - 1Q84 Part 2 (Book 2 Ch 13 to end Book 3)
Hi everyone, After an excellent discussion of the first half of the book we will discuss the second half of Haruki Murakami's 1Q84 at this meeting. Anyone is welcome to attend and you do not need to have attended the discussion of the first half to do so. The Meetup will be held at my apartment again and I'll message attendees the address a day or two before the meeting. Our next Long Reads book (again, running in parallel to the main group) will be Dhalgren by Samuel R. Delany. Amazon says "Bellona is a city at the dead center of the United States. Something has happened there…. The population has fled. Madmen and criminals wander the streets. Strange portents appear in the cloud-covered sky. And into this disaster zone comes a young man–poet, lover, and adventurer–known only as the Kid. Tackling questions of race, gender, and sexuality, Dhalgren is a literary marvel and groundbreaking work of American magical realism." We will discuss the first half of this book on Wednesday February 13th 2019 - more details will follow in a separate post in due course.

    What we're about

    Whether you are an avid reader, or US Magazine is your literature of choice, this book club is for you. I was doing some perusing through the various Meetup groups and saw that there was not a Meetup for GLBT readers. So, I thought rather than complain, let me start one of our own. My intention is that this book club be a place to ignite friendship, thoughtful conversation and an opportunity to connect over some really good books.
