Satire is primarily a literary genre or form, although in practice it can also be found in the graphic and performing arts. In satire, vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, and society itself, into improvement. Although satire is usually meant to be funny, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit as a weapon.

[close] This is a local Meetup group. The mission of North DFW Broader Horizons Book Club is explore different genres and expose ourselves to variety of perspectives through honest discussion. The idea is to have very different monthly genres through out the year, where the Members nominate the best examples of each genre and then we all vote on the book for the month. If you're tired of reading the same old stuff and want to broaden your reading horizons, then give us a shot! Who knows, you might stumble upon a book you didn't know you'd like! We meet every 2nd Sunday of the month from 4 - 6 pm at Pathways Unitarian Universalist Church 481 West Harwood Rd, Hurst, TX
