Welcome! We are a social club that reads. This is a group for people in the Shirlington area - singles, couples - anyone who's down-to-earth and likes to have fun! We'll periodically discuss book selections over a few drinks at a local Shirlington establishment. We will also host happy hours and other social events and are open to other ideas too!
The books won't all be classics--more used for the catchy title--but we will read somewhat intelligent and thought provoking selections. We intend for our book discussions to be casual conversation starters, so don't worry if you haven't finished the book or just want to come hang out with some local Shirlington folks. Feel free to join us!
Sorry for the shorter notice than usual, but as always, you don't have to read the book. If you do want to read it, I thought we'd go with a post-election political satire, since I'm sure we will pretty much just be talking about the election anyway.
Let's read In Defense of Elitism: Why I'm Better Than You and You are Better Than Someone Who Didn't Buy This Book, by former Time columnist Joel Stein.
We'll meet in the park again for a socially-distant brunch. Bring your own blanket, food and beverage!
