What we're about
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 in Raleigh or Durham to discuss a book or other writing by an author who has been mentioned on Brain Pickings. 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. Hope you can join us!
