This month's pick is "The Circle" by Dave Eggers.
"The Circle" is a dystopian novel about a young woman works for a giant Silicon-valley type company. At first, she is awed by the modern campus complete with the "open-plan office spaces, towering glass dining facilities, aquarium of rare fish and employee healthcare." However, the companies policies of data-mining, monitoring, and privacy rights blur the line between right and wrong, making Mae look at her job in a new light.
During our meetup, we will take some time to get to know each other first, sip on drinks, then dive into our discussion.
We meet at Lulu Cafe which is a fun yet cozy cafe and bar in Bayview. We have a reservation in the private lounge area. Everyone will be broken up into smaller groups so all can have a chance to share ideas. Space is limited, so RSVP as soon as possible! Please let us know 24 hours in advance if you cannot attend so people on the waitlist can join us.
Thanks, and see you then!
