Enjoy reading brainy books? Classics of world literature? Philosophy? Something entertaining, yet intellectually stimulating? Do you actually CHOOSE to pick up novels by the likes of E.M. Forster, D.H. Lawrence, Emily Bronte, or maybe Toni Morrison? Does exploring philosophical classics (Plato's Symposium, maybe? Sartre? Hume?) actually appeal to you?
If reading great literature with a friendly, laid-back, edgy intellectual crowd turns you on, then this is the meetup for you. We won't take ourselves or anything TOO seriously, but we will delve into some fantastic books, talk about them, discuss, debate, learn, etc. And we will have fun.
Stanislaw Lem was a science fiction writer, philosopher, and essayist. His books are deceptively entertaining, yet serious: they explore important issues in technology, use of intellect, and humanity's place in the universe. In September we marked 100 years from his birth, and this meeting will be a tribute to this interesting writer and thinker.
