'Them' Book Brunch w/ Jon Ronson

(That's three events posted in less than 24 hours! if you're reading this before September 17th, be sure to check out this post with details on other events)

The disembodied voice of Jon Ronson will be joining us by Skype (for real this time!) for our book discussion of Them: Adventures with Extremists. If you haven't read it yet, go pick it up now. For more details, see my previous post about Jon Ronson.

If you've finished and liked Them, you should read Ronson's The Men Who Stare at Goats, which will be released as a film starring George Clooney and Ewan McGreggor later this year. In fact, here's Clooney now, showing that this movie will do what it says on the tin:
Okay, details. We're having this thing mid-day, as Jon lives in the UK, and I don't think he'd be to keen to speak to us in the middle of the night. And we'll be having a potluck brunch at my house. Come on over at 11:00 to chat and eat, and we'll have Jon on at noon.

Date: Sunday, September 27
Time: 11:00 AM
Location: My house (email me at for the address, or just RSVP on the Facebook or Meetup events once they're created.)
What to bring:
Yourself, a copy of Them if you have it, and something brunchy to nom.
