If you're a fan of Brain Pickings — or you just enjoy reading books about creativity, psychology, spirituality, design, and art — this is the book club for you. We meet each month to discuss a book featured on the Brain Pickings reading list. We're a diverse group of curious, open-minded people who like to talk about themes like mindfulness, empathy, solitude, and awe ... and all of the things that make life both beautiful and difficult. Join us! Please note that all attendees are expected to read and abide by our group guidelines

• We're looking for a Durham co-organizer for 2017! If you can lead four to six discussions throughout the year, ideally in the Durham area, please email

• Want to get involved another way? You can lead a discussion, suggest a book or venue, or learn about sponsorship opportunities. You can also donate a few dollars to help pay for Meetup fees — which is greatly appreciated. Email for more info.

Check out the books we've read on Goodreads.
