This February: (Over)Thinking About Love on Feb 11
“It ought to make us feel ashamed when we talk like we know what we're talking about when we talk about love.” ― Raymond Carver
We don't really care if you're single, married, divorced, attached, or unattached, so long as you love books and read them on a regular basis... we want to invite you near this Valentine's Day!
Based on majority votes last month, we want to analyze a subject that's extremely personal to each of us: LOVE. It will be a mix of fiction and non-fiction literature but expect to hear reviews on books like "Essays in Love" written by Alain De Botton, "What We Talk About When We Talk About Love" written by Raymond Carver, "Modern Romance: An Investigation" written by Azis Ansari and Eric Klinenberg, "Hector and Secrets of Love" written by psychiatrist François Lelord, "Love Life" written by Ray Kluun, and more (to be updated).
It will be easier for you to join in the discussion if you have read one of these books in advance.
AGENDA OF EVENT:• Book reviews & discussion
• Book auctions (previously owned by one of our most active reviewers, Anggie)
• Book swap (bring your old book and expect to bring home a "new" one. We don't accept journals, magazines, cookbooks or textbooks)
• Secondhand book sale (from leftover swaps last year!)
The discussion will be moderated in English and Bahasa Indonesia. This event is independently supported by JBC officers.
RSVP is a must. Anyone who's submitted RSVP but fails to come without one day notice will be transferred to the waiting list at the next meetup. See you there!
