What's the Big Idea? Book Club

What's the Big Idea? Book Club

Location:
Euclid Yacht Club
1136 Euclid Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30307

The inspiration for this club is also the first book we'll read: The Futilitarians: Our Year of Thinking, Drinking, Grieving and Reading by Anne Gisleson. The book is an account of a group of friends facing life's difficulties--large and small--and looking to literary works (and alcohol) to help them find the wisdom to cope. We'll consider some newer books, almost exclusively non-fiction, like Chuck Klosterman's But What if We're Wrong?, but we'll primarily focus more on well-established literature and, especially, essays and works of criticism that consider the power of such works.

The What's the Big Idea Book Club meets the third Monday of each month at 7:30 p.m.

Book Club Liaison: Frank Reiss
