This is a reminder for our experimental "Book Unclub
" to talk about books related to:
a) social media / social networking,
b) nonprofit technology, and/or
c) social change
In the spirit of unconferences
, the specific books to be discussed (in breakout groups) will be selected that evening by those who show up.
Over 25 great books have been recommended so far on the Google spreadsheet
, including Wikinomics
, Here Comes Everybody
, Technology and Social Inclusion
, The New Community Rules
, and others. (You can add your own suggestions via the form
.) Of course, none of us has read ALL of these books. So, why should YOU come to the Book Unclub?
For those books you HAVEN?T read, come to the Book Unclub to:
- decide in which, if any, of these books you might want to invest your limited reading time
- hear about some of the most exciting, cutting edge thinking in this brave new world
for those books you HAVE read, come to the Book Unclub to :
- share the exciting or meaningful ideas the books provoked for you
- connect with others whose interest and passion was also sparked by such books
This event will be held on December 1 (6:30 PM @ Robin's Bookstore
/ Moonstone Arts Center, 110A S. 13th St., 2nd floor). (NOTE DIFFERENT VENUE and TIME) RSVP's
are appreciated but NOT requried. Just bring yourself (and, if you can, bring some books to show, share, read from, lend, sell or give away).
We greatly appreciate Robin's Bookstore
