Futurist Reading Group at the Border's Bookstore at 2190 N. Rainbow

The format of the Las Vegas reading group will be modelled after the
Los Angeles and Bay Area Reading Groups. The total meeting time is 2
hours starting at 7:00pm at Borders Bookstore. It starts with a brief
introduction from everyone in attendance. Get to know other futurist
in your community! We'll spend a few minutes sharing of futurist
articles. We will spend the remainder of the time listening to book
report and then a group discussion about the book. The reporter is
encouraged to select interesting topics gleaned from the book. This
first meeting, we will listen to a joint report by Michael Korns and
Gilda Cabral on the book As the Future Catches You by Juan Enriquez.
We will reserve the last 15 minutes of the meeting, to discuss
which book to read for the next meeting plus assign a person (s) to
do the report on the book. If you have read a book you read that is
cool and exciting, please suggest the title of the book during the
last part of the meeting and volunteer as reporter.
As always, it is not required to read the book to attend the meeting.
But hopefully, we will over the course of several meeting find topics
of interest to you and during the discussion period, we would like to
hear your opinion!
Please come and join us, bring an article, bring a friend!
