Join The New Yorker discussion club. After all, reading is a social activity, isnt it? We read and then share our thoughts and learn the insights and opinions of others, making the total experience more complete and enjoyable.

Everyone has an equal opportunity to speak and to listen. We discuss the content of the articles, the general topic area as it is experienced in our lives, and how they are written. All opinions are welcome; no one is right and no one is wrong. We do not want to veer off into long discussions of politics and other areas of disagreement, but rather we want to stay focused on the content of the articles and what we can learn from them.

Everyone should join in and highlight on the event site in advance of the meeting articles to read. But all are welcome to come to the meeting with other articles to discuss that have not been highlighted in advance. This meeting will select articles from the issues of October 23, October 30, November 6, and November 13. A general strategy is to select one good article from each magazine to discuss at the meeting. But to emphasize, please dont feel pressured to read a lot of articles. We tend to discuss up to five articles or so at each meeting anyway.

As you read a good article, please post the name, author, issue, and a comment on the event website for others to see.

Those who are not subscribers can read a few free articles per month at the New Yorker website without being asked to subscribe. Your local library should also have current New Yorker issues.

This meeting is being held at a North location. Future meetings will be held in Central and South locations.
