Alternative Reading Club (ARC)


HI All,

I've just moved here from India and Sweden, and want to start a kind of alternative reading club: one in which we are NOT reading NYTimes bestsellers, but more indie and intellectual stuff. The books would most likely be a mix of non-fiction, political, classics, and more.

In India I belonged to a book club which I found both fun and stimulating. We would vote on a few books at a meeting or by email, and then meet about once a month. I'd like to establish something like that here in DC. The goal would be to have a core group of at least 4 or 5 core members (including me) for the monthly meeting.

Hopefully we can get a group going and choose a few books by early to mid July.
