Book club for the curious. Enjoy and discuss topics ranging from science, think Stephen Hawking, Michio Kaku to historical biographies to books like The Tipping Point. We'll nominate and vote on books together. I love to read all sorts of non-fiction and am looking to discuss books with other non-fiction readers. We'll try meeting monthly at first and see how that works. Together as a group we can nominate and vote on what to read for the next month. I'll bring some lists of non-fiction books but any suggestions are welcome and encouraged. I found out from the Medford Public Library that we can meet there as long as we aren't too loud.
