What we're about

Here's the deal, I like big books and I cannot lie. I like small books too. No book judgement.

Readers out there! Hear me now!

Founded on the Westside of LA, we got together on a dedicated night of the week for dinner or drinks, or both, but mostly to talk books, life, be out and about, and meet cool people doing cool things. Through the pandemic, we have found a new home virtually and plan to stay that way going forward.

This group is for you if you like books and to discuss books from all sorts of genres, enjoy meeting people from all walks of life, reading books that stretch or challenge you from time to time, and sip easily on wine or cocktails or beer (or any types of beverages, really) whilst discussing books and chatting with people.

This group is not for you if you are closed off to new experiences or people.

Logistics: 2nd Monday of the month, roughly 7:30 - 9:00 pm, toggling between fiction and nonfiction. Discussions range from the book to applicable current landscapes, crossovers, personal experiences, and insights. Open mind and diplomacy is a must.

August Book Club - Before the Coffee Gets Cold @ the interwebs

Needs a location

Come read & drink with us! Virtually, because...that's what we do now.

For August, we are reading Before the Coffee Gets Cold by Toshikazu Kawaguchi.

"In a small back alley in Tokyo, there is a café which has been serving carefully brewed coffee for more than one hundred years. But this coffee shop offers its customers a unique experience: the chance to travel back in time.

But the journey into the past does not come without risks: customers must sit in a particular seat, they cannot leave the café, and finally, they must return to the present before the coffee gets cold . . ."

As a reminder, this meetup's intentions are to explore new books, revisit old ones, drink, and discussions about books. We will be drinking and discussing virtually in August!

Again, come read & drink with us!

We will meet in a zoom room, and I will send out the link before the meetup start time!

September Book Club - The Mirage Factory @ the interwebs

Needs a location

Come read & drink with us! Virtually, because...that's what we do now.

For September, we are reading The Mirage Factory by Gary Krist.

"Little more than a century ago, the southern coast of California was sleepy desert farmland. Then from it, nearly overnight, emerged one of the world's largest and most iconic cities. The birth and evolution of Los Angeles--its seemingly impossible, meteoric rise--can be attributed largely to three ingenious but deeply flawed people. D.W. Griffith, the early film pioneer who first conceived of feature-length movies, gave Hollywood its industry. Aimee Semple McPherson, a young evangelist and radio preacher, infused the city with its spiritual identity as a hub for reinvention. And William Mulholland, an Irish immigrant turned ditch-digger turned autodidactic engineer, would design the massive aqueduct that made survival in the harsh climate feasible."

As a reminder, this meetup's intentions are to explore new books, revisit old ones, drink, and discussions about books. We will be drinking and discussing virtually in September!

Again, come read & drink with us!

We will meet in a zoom room, and I will send out the link before the meetup start time!

October Book Club - The Left Hand of Darkness @ the interwebs

Needs a location

Come read & drink with us! Virtually, because...that's what we do now.

For October we are reading The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K Le Guin.

"A groundbreaking work of science fiction, The Left Hand of Darkness tells the story of a lone human emissary to Winter, an alien world whose inhabitants can choose - and change - their gender. His goal is to facilitate Winter's inclusion in a growing intergalactic civilization. But to do so he must bridge the gulf between his own views and those of the completely dissimilar culture that he encounters."

As a reminder, this meetup's intentions are to explore new books, revisit old ones, drink, and discussions about books. We will be drinking and discussing virtually in October!
