Take your pick: book, Kindle or mp3.
In this group we ensure every title is available in all three formats.

We meet in the new Central Park complex (opposite UTS) on a Saturday afternoon. When the weather is fine we do so outdoors. Sometimes sitting on the lawn, other times in a cafe or the public food court.

The titles are chosen to encourage discussion of psychological, sociological, political, or philosophical themes raised by the author.
