Hobart Pseudo-Intellectuals Book Club
Spending too much time hunching over Facebook rather than a tattered copy of Albert Camus’ The Stranger? Pining over the days when your biggest worry was writing a 1000-word essay on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby? Yearning for some vigorous debate about the scruples of Henry Miller? If you love books but feel your library card has been growing cobwebs of late, you’re certainly not alone.
This is a book club for people not only wanting to read more, but get more out of the books they do read by engaging in some deep (and not-so-deep) discussion with other book-heads. We’ll read a range of books, but focus on alternating 20th and 21st century greats, and talk it out over in cosy surroundings over beer/chais/Absinthe/ whatever you fancy. We meet monthly, usually on the last Wednesday of the month. Room 10, upstairs in the New Sydney Hotel, is the go-to location.
