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.
For you podcast-heads, rest assured, the readings are usually by professional actors. If you do prefer audio, go to Audible (click here) for a month's free trial subscription. Titles I already own are...
