If your ideal night out is actually a night in, this event is for you!
Silent Book Club (www.silentbook.club) is happy hour for introverts. Once a month in more than 40 cities around the world, groups of readers gather in bars, cafés, libraries, bookstores, and restaurants. They turn off their devices, share book recommendations, and then settle in for a quiet evening of reading. It’s a perfect semi-social evening for introverts, bookworms, non-drinkers and anyone in between!
6:30pm: Come in, meet some people, nerd out about books for a bit — feel free to BYO dinner
7pm: Cozy up in blissful silence with a book that you bring. We’re taking over WeWork’s “game room” which has plenty of comfy nooks and bean bag chairs!
8pm: Keep on reading or pop in another room for an ice cream happy hour (nut free + dairy free options provided)
This event is free! In the spirit of Purim, the Jewish holiday in March which encourages giving gifts in your community, we are collecting donations of gently loved books for Project HOME (www.projecthome.org) at this event! They started a new initiative where residents who have experienced homelessness sell gently used books online. Feel free to bring up to 5 books to donate.
Accessibility note — this venue is fully wheelchair accessible and we are happy to provide a sign language interpreter with notice. We are also able to cater to dietary restrictions. To check in about these and other accommodations, please email email@example.com.
