What we're about

We are a small, casual group whose focus is to bring together like-minded individuals who want to socialize and make new friends while exploring all of the great things that the Triangle has to offer. Durham is our home base for most activities, but we’re happy to explore all parts of the Triangle and we welcome members from anywhere in the region.

Our meetups mainly include book discussions and movies, but have also included live music, trivia nights, plays, museums, festivals, dining out and just about anything else that might be fun. Members are always free to suggest events for the group. Just contact one of the organizers with details of the event you'd like to host and we will post it for you.

Durham Books, Movies and More is funded by its members. There is a required annual fee to keep the Meetup site going of $8 per member. New members have 60 days to try out our group before paying dues. If you like the group and want to continue attending, please pay your dues on the Meetup page.

February Book Discussion: Circe by Madeline Miller

Roots Bistro & Bar

FEBRUARY BOOK DISCUSSION CIRCE by Madeline Miller Hosted by Caroline #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER--NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR, The Washington Post, People, Time, Amazon, Entertainment Weekly, Bustle, Newsweek, the A.V. Club, Christian Science Monitor and Refinery 29, Buzzfeed, Paste, Audible, Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, Thrillist, NYPL, Self Real Simple, Goodreads, Boston Globe, Electric Literature, BookPage, the Guardian, Book Riot, Seattle Times, and Business Insider In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child--not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power--the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves. Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus. But there is danger, too, for a woman who stands alone, and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods, ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians. To protect what she loves most, Circe must summon all her strength and choose, once and for all, whether she belongs with the gods she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love. With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language and page-turning suspense, Circe is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man's world.
