Twook Club Meeting #2- Title announcement!

Once again, the polls are closed, the votes are in… we have a weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeener. It’s Maus!

I think it’s a great choice… it was first mentioned at the first meeting and I think it’s going to challenge us to discuss/take in a different type of read to what 90% of us would be used to. Sure isn’t that the beauty of it all?!

You can click here to get hold of it on Amazon.

Once more, it will take place on August the 25th at 7.30pm, at the usual venue of 119 Upper Leeson St.

Again, it’s important to emphasise (as we did last month) that although we can only house 15 people at the first actual meeting, the whole point of a Twitter-based book club is that people will be able to join in from wherever they are anywhere in the world, via the medium of the liveblog that Gav will once again be taking command of on the night, and – naturally – over Twitter where we’ll be using the #twookclub hashtag, and where you can direct your Tweets to @DublinTwookClub. We’ll be harping on about that a lot in the next few weeks though so don’t worry about taking all that in for now. Prioritise getting your hands on the book and getting stuck in!

I’ve been cheating slightly myself as I picked up a copy of the book after the last meeting suspecting it may make the cut for meeting #2. It did! Don’t I feel smug! There was so fiddling of the poll though. I swear 🙂

Happy reading folks!

ps. Have an idea for the next meeting too… that each attendee could bring a piece/quote/line/address from a book that touched them. Be it humour, romance, tales of distress or moments of enlightenment, all can share a moment in literature that meant something to them… for whatever reason. I look forward to the diversity of what the group throws up. I suspect it will help everyone get an idea where contributers are coming from, from a personal perspective point of view.  Get thinking on it!

pps. Do send this post the way of your friends so they can partake 🙂

    Hey! I read about this book a while ago in the Guardian. It looks amazing!
    How do I join the book club?

  2. Hi there Jo!

    There is no real joining up to be done really, basically all you need to do is read Maus before the 25th and be prepared to visit the site here on the night so you can join in the online discussion! Simple as. It should be great this time, last month was a steep learning curve but we are certainly getting a good grasp of what we need to do now 🙂

    If you have any questions don’t hesitate to get in contact.

    Ciara 🙂

  3. I’m so far behind on everything at the moment. I’ll have to miss this month’s Twookery. Hopefully next month will be a better one for me.
