Let's read "An Enemy Of The People," by Henrik Ibsen
December’s selection is the 1882 play “An Enemy Of The People,” by Henrik Ibsen. This entertaining play tells the story of Dr. Thomas Stockman, whose honesty is in conflict with the economic interests of a small town in Norway. For his truth-telling, Stockman is dubbed an “enemy of the people.” Ibsen, author of such masterpieces as “Hedda Gabler” and “A Doll’s House," is considered by many to be the “father of modern drama.” “An Enemy Of The People” is available from bookstores, libraries, and as an online pdf. Let’s read it!

    What we're about

    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. It's OKAY to be into this kind of thing. Promise.
