Alex (superdove) Can anyone recommend an awesome, casual book club within the city?

Liddy Barlow | 3 comments It's far too early to call it awesome, but I did want all the Pittsburgh GoodReaders to know that I'm starting a new book club at the church where I work: Smithfield United Church of Christ at 620 Smithfield Street downtown. We'll be reading novels and non-fiction with religious themes, and discussing them in an open-minded, informal way. All perspectives are most welcome -- you don't have to be a regular churchgoer or even a Christian at all to take part. Our first meeting is this Monday, January 28 from 12:10-12:50 p.m. Bring your brown bag lunch, and come make some new friends!

David (mugsynoir) There is a group that meets at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh to discuss light mysteries, the third Friday of the month at 1 PM. Check with the Library for the exact location.

Carnegie Museum of Art is hosting a monthly book club for the next six months in connection with the exhibition Life on Mars, the 2008 Carnegie International. Details are available on the Life on Mars goodreads page, or at www.cmoa.org/ci08lifeonmars.

geekboy42 I would be interested James, but I suffer from the "living a good distance from town" disease. I wouldn't be able to make very frequent (more then biweekly say) events.

James, it's a good idea, although this time of year might not be conducive. I have health problems that limit my activities, which is why I love Good Reads so much. Still, it's hard to replace real live human discussion. I live in the East End near Regent Sq.

Jason (hodown94) | 5 comments I want a book club. A new theme each month! One month it could The Golden Age, the next Modern Chinese-American books, the next Dark Romanticism! It's a genius idea. Two books a month! Any takers?

While i'm not going to be back in pittsburgh until April, it would be a great think to start. Why don't ya'll get it going and then when i finally move back, we can have it at my house!!!
