Northtown Books Reading Group

| | Friday, May 23, 2008

Northtown Books reading group is for anyone who is interested in reading and discussing our monthly selections. The group will choose books and they’ll be available behind the counter at a 10% discount. The meetings take place the second Sunday of each month from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the store. Please come prepared to participate in a lively, friendly and respectful discussion. We would like all members of the community to feel welcome.

Our next meeting will take place Sunday, June 8th. Check here at our blog for future book group selections. Our next selection is Radical Hope by Jonathan Lear. It discusses Plenty Coups, the last great chief of the Crow Nation, and his response to a complete change of life for his people. Seems very timely to discuss how to cope when the conditions of life are radically altered. Not just how to adapt, how to remain hopeful.

An alternate selection is A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. This book would be interesting to discuss in tandem with our main selection. Absolutely optional, but so many people are reading this, so it would be interesting to see what it's all about.
