THE BOOK CLUB

The gym’s book club - BOOKMARKED - is running down in irregular intervals. We decide for a book and meet up to discuss it during several (mostly weekly) meetings throughout a month.

The books we select are meant to foster imagination and/or support us with our creative process. Through discussion we widen our perspective and learn new points of view.

The book clubs are moderated by us and designed to trigger inspiring discussions.

 

THE BOOK

Yuval Noah Harari - 21 lessons for the 21st century

“In a world deluged by irrelevant information, clarity is power. Censorship works not by blocking the flow of information, but rather by flooding people with disinformation and distractions. 21 Lessons for the 21st Century cuts through these muddy waters and confronts some of the most urgent questions on today’s global agenda.” - Yuval Noah Harari.

 

THE READING SCHEDULE

We will meet at 4 Thursdays throughout November to discuss one or two parts of the book. Beforehand we will send out questions for reflections that we might cover during the meet-ups.

FREE, APPRECIATION WELCOME

BOOKMARKED is a free community format that we organise. We put in quite some effort to curate an interesting experience for our visitors.

We want to keep it affordable and accessible but your appreciation at the event is more than welcome if you'd like to help us to keep the lights on :)

We recommend the equivalent of a movie ticket (around € 5-10) but are happy about any amount that you chip in at the event.
