YP Longreads Club: The Deported Americans

February 17, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Introducing the Longreads Club

Do you feel like it takes so much time to keep up with the news that you never go beyond the surface level? Do you have many long articles marked as “read later,” but never get to it?

If so, let us introduce you to the Longreads Club. It’s like a book club, but we read long-form articles focused on global topics.

It is a new meetup that replaces the old discussion group format. We will discuss a single long-form article (10-minute read or greater) focused on some aspect of international affairs. The article will be announced a week before each meeting. Unlike a traditional book club, it will be easier to get the reading done. Although we use the word “club,” there is no membership. All you have to do to join us is show up.

For our next meeting, we will discuss “The Deported Americans” by Brooke Jarvis. Published in The California Sunday Magazine (est. reading time: 27 minutes: https://story.californiasunday.com/deported-americans)

Join us, as we go beyond the headlines.
