About The Event
If there's one thing we love at Chaotic Social, it's a good yarn. A story for the ages, a tale as old as time, a narrative we can lose ourselves in to forget the bin fire that is the world sometimes. So pull out your cats eye reading glasses and grab your largest wine glass and come on over for the inaugural Chaotic Social Book Club. The lowdown: we'll meet every four weeks on the lastish Wednesday of the month, with a view to focusing on Australian authors (very open to fiery debate about this, of course). The very first CSBC (as it shall henceforth be known) will be held on Wednesday, July 26, starting at 7pm for a rowdy (especially if you BYO) discussion of Search History by debut novelist Amy Taylor (from Melbourne/Naarm). The CSBC will be hosted by Chaotic Socialite Heather McNab, renowned (in her mind at least) inner west bookworm and pop culture enthusiast. Covid did a number on all of our attention spans, so you absolutely do not need to be someone who 'reads a lot' (whatever that means) or even at all normally to come along - and if you don't finish the book, who's going to know? Come alone or with a mate and yell your opinions across the room at people you've just met - sounds like the perfect way to spend a Wednesday evening, right? We'd encourage you to think about supporting a local independent bookstore when buying books for the CSBC - this is the power of community, after all! - such as our Newtown neighbour Better Read Than Dead or Dulwich Hill's Gleebooks - but feel free to swap, borrow, use your local library, or listen at breakneck speed on Audible when you inevitably forget until the day before (we've all been there babes). We'll decide on which book to read for each month via a poll, which could be a disastrous way to choose but we've got to be equal parts Chaotic and Social so let the fun begin!
