Gangplank Chandler’s Guilt Free Book Club is an awesome place to discuss and share new and interesting ideas. You don’t even have to read the book to join in our lively discussions! We meet on the Second Wednesday of each month at Gangplank Chandler at 6pm.
For those interested in reading along, we have selected the next 6 months books:
Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us by Seth Godin
Impro: Improvisation and the Theatre by Keith Johnstone
This month we decided to mix things up with two books. Read one or the other or both or neither.
Why Not Capitalism by Jason Brennan
The End of History and the Last Man by Francis Fukuyama
Wizard: The Life and Times of Nikola Tesla: Biography of a Genius by Marc Seifer
Presence Human Purpose and the field of the Future by Peter Senge, Otto Scharmer, Joseph Jaworski, and Betty Sue Flowers
How to Cook a Wolf by M.F.K. Fisher
On the second Wednesday of every month, Gangplankers gather in Chandler for a lively discussion on their latest reading material. However, this book club is a bit different. It is about the content. You don’t have to even have read the book. An interest in the topic and willingness to share fresh perspective is enough for us to welcome your presence.
However, we still get people who want to actually…read. In order to help people with that endeavor, we selected a few books in advance.
June – The Invention of Air: A Story of Science, Faith, Revolution, And The Birth Of America by Steven Johnson
July – How Will You Measure Your Life by Clayton Christensen
August – The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupery
September – Anti Fragile by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
October (in honor of Food Day) – In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan
November – Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies by Jared Diamond
Have ideas for an awesome book to include next time? Let us know. We are always looking out for great books.
Gangplank believes you never stop learning. As a result, we strive to offer classes/workshops providing content to keep Gangplankers moving at the rapid pace of business. Academy courses last approximately 60-90 minutes on Tuesday evenings (unless otherwise stated), with the goal for participants to walk away with a new or expanded skill set. For 2012, we are expanding our class offerings, scheduling at least two Academy courses each month. Here is a preview of the classes already scheduled: (more…)
