Extraordinary Reads is a monthly drop-in book club with a curated reading list that aims to spark conversations about creativity and the fundamental experience of being human. It’s not about abstract, inaccessible ideas, but exploring our creative process and everyday experiences through a new lens.

With a focus on popular psychology and philosophy, each month a new book will be prescribed along with a list of links to podcast interviews, TED talks and articles so if you don’t have time to read the book, you can still get the gist and be part of the conversation.

Join us for wine, cheese and extraordinary chats with friendly faces every third Monday of the month. For the quarterly reading list and links, please visit http://www.extraordinaryroutines.com/reads
