Article Club #27
December 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The point of Article Club is to challenge ourselves to read a diverse range of articles, share them with like-minded people and deal with our anxiety that we aren’t reading books!
Article Club was set up by Ross Bailey in 2015 who did a fantastic job at running it. Ross was followed by the equally fantastic Claire Ferraro and I (Alistair Baker) took on its chairmanship a year ago.
Here is a recap of how the Club works:
1. We meet about every six weeks or so in the National Theatre.
2. We pick two articles from a short list and have a chat about them for roughly an hour. Usually one relates to politics/current affairs and the other to history/culture/science etc.
3. We talk about each one for around half an hour. The discussion covers whether we liked them, what we think is important about the article and what other articles we might want to look at in a similar vein.
4. We each give a score out of 10 for the articles that have been discussed.
5. We adjourn to the pub.
