A book club committed to high-minded intellectual pursuits and discussion. Hosted in a serene garden atmosphere.

About this event

Book clubs can oftentimes be hit-or-miss. Maybe the chosen book is dissatisfying. Maybe the facilitator quashes dissent. Maybe the people simply don’t match your vibe. Perhaps the book club is listless and uninspired. In short, it’s bullshit.

Enter No Bullshit Book Club. Situated in a relaxed and spacious urban garden, and hosted by Big Nothing Books, this club focuses on analysis of more complicated, academic non-fiction texts and literary fiction. Argument is encouraged. Dialogue is encouraged. Games will be played. Poems will be written. We’ll avoid the curse of being a bullshit book club.

Big Nothing Books is headed by an educator of twenty years with experience in all facets of education. He has taught across Asia and the Middle East, and takes a light-hearted, yet intellectually rigorous, approach to learning of all kinds. Be prepared to back up your thoughts!
