Meet-Up Discussion

Hi all! Please use this discussion thread to discuss Bookclub is back held on Apr 9, 2024. Feel free to ask questions about the place, date and time, agenda of the meeting, or anything else.

Hey, Autumn and others! I’m located in Minneapolis, and I ❤️ the idea of doing a course with others! (It aligns with experiences I wrote about here.) I think I might join you.

I’m curious if past “book clubs” have been recorded. I’d love to get a taste of what to expect. I suspect that the answer is no, but I thought I’d ask. 🙂

Hello EJ, unfortunately we haven’t recorded any of our meetings but I hope you can join the next one!

Thank you Autumn for organizing! Here’s the link to our Slack channel:
