Genesis: The Deep Origin of Societies
For our August meetup, we will read Genesis: The Deep Origin of Societies by E.O. Wilson. The book is described as a “pithy yet path-breaking work of evolutionary theory, braiding twenty-first-century scientific theory with the lyrical biological and humanistic observations for which Wilson is known.” It’s sure to be a fascinating discussion!
Time & Place
The meetup will be 6PM on Wednesday, August 14 in the eating/drinking/meeting area of the Whole Foods at Ray & the 101.
From the Whole Foods entrance, go straight to the the back, then make a right. There are lots of eating & drinking options.
Accepting New Suggestions
At our August meetup, we will select new books for us to read over the following six months.
Have an idea? Why not suggest a book?
If it gives you inspiration, we try to select books from the following genres:
- Popular science
- Popular culture
- Literary fiction
- Science fiction
- Business & marketing
- Field trip (some examples from the past include seeing a movie, going to an improv show, and going hiking in the desert)
Place to Meet
Although the Whole Foods is a pretty good place to meet, we are open to new suggestions. Ideally, we’re looking for a place with the following criteria:
- Be centrally located
- Allow food so we can have a potluck
- Have big round tables so we can all easily participate in the conversation
- Serve or allow alcohol
If you can think of a place that meets these criteria, please suggest it at our August meetup so we can discuss!
