Exploring Solitude & Community
Join us for a special edition of The Book Club in collaboration with De Nieuwe Liefde, where we delve into the depths of Community and Solitude.
As the end of the year approaches, we see a a growing emphasis on community and sharing. Whether it is coming together for the holidays or cosying up together on dark cold days, we tend to long for comfort in communion. However, during this season many of us are also faced with solitude. At times we crave solitude to ground ourselves amid the buzz of the festive season, at other times solitude is beyond our control like when we are made to miss our communities, friends and family. Whatever the case, navigating community as well as solitude can be tricky, and knowing how to do so gracefully is vital for our mental health.
Hosted at literary house De Nieuwe Liefde in Amsterdam on December 10th, this unprecedented Book Club session welcomes participants, whether you’ve read the book or not. Our spotlight will be on a round table of six carefully chosen unique thinkers, and the conversation will unfold with an engaged audience with room to reflect and contribute to the conversation
- Keep The Receipts – Tolani Shoneye, Milena Sanchez & Audrey Indome
- The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho
- Shoe Dog – Phil Knight
- Quiet: The Power of the Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking – Susan Cain
