All attendees are expected to read the book (or atleast try their best!) • We will also ask for volunteers and pick a Book Wizard. • At the meet-up, the Book Wizard will present a short summary of the book (can be a short 5-15 minute presentation or just a short verbal summary, or even some trivia about the book/author). • After this it's all a casual chat — we'll talk about the book and discuss more if there interest. We may organize some small activities that help us discuss the book more. • Important: It's a requirement to order food from the venue. Doesn't have to be big, but please make sure you order. It's not easy to find places without a minimum spend — and there is no other fee for the meet-up. So please show your support for the venue & the club.
