Coffee & Conversation

Coffee & Conversation West End Neighborhood Library

On Wednesday April 6, 2022 eleven devoted souls reunited to kick off the first 2022 gathering of the West End Neighborhood Library's Coffee & Conversation program. After a lapse of almost five months the group met in front of the Library on a beautiful afternoon and talked of everything and nothing while enjoying coffee courtesy of the DCPL. Participants determined that too much scrutiny of the proceedings via meeting minutes or transcripts would limit the conversation's spontaneity and flow, so to discover what goes on one must do the work and sit in!

We devoted and sometimes not-so-gentle readers of The Intimidating Book Club are neither too proud nor afraid to ask ourselves the hard questions while we do our reading: Why is War and Peace so long? What is George Eliot’s real name? Isn’t Don Quixote super annoying?
