… subtitled Freedom, Being & Apricot Cocktails… Paris, the early 30s. The three friends meeting over apricot cocktails on the rue Montparnasse are Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir and their friend Raymond Aron. Out of the conversations comes existentialism, and this is the story of the people involved, their personal development and their philosophical development.
The book claims to make existentialism understandable. Will the book group agree?
Five Leaves Book Group is open. It usually meets on the last week of each month, discussing fiction and non-fiction. We’re happy that people come once in a while, we’re happy if people turn up every time. As long as they have read the book. We don’t mind where people source their books but in the lead up to meetings we offer 15% discount on book group books, whether people are planning to come or not!
Free, refreshments provided. But not apricot cocktails, sorry
