Next Meeting - Thurs Oct 22
8.00 - 9.00pm
Hosted by Brooks Bebon
"Time wins in the long run. Books turn to dust, negatives decay, records get worn out, civilizations burn. But as long as the art endures, a song or a view or a thought or a feeling someone once thought worth keeping is saved and stays shareable. Others can say, 'I feel that too.'"
- David Mitchell, Utopia Avenue (2020)
Welcome to White Rabbit.
This is your invitation.
An invitation to edge into the unknown. To discover unopened doors of perception. To walk through forgotten portals with old friends and new. To laugh and enjoy the simple pleasures and bizarre power of the written word.
White Rabbit is a space. A space to unwrap language and peer through the portals hidden just underneath the surface. Portals of love. Portals of loss. Portals of beauty. Portals of the profoundly bizarre. Portals of the human experience. You are entering a reading space for the people by the people. It is a collective agreement to respect the experiences of others, but also understand the common threads that bind us. To playfully challenge stable points of view. To realize that we all live on the edge. And through this realization understand the absurdity and majesty of existence. That life is a cosmic comedy and we all have a role to play. Or in this case, read. And through our collective reading we will strive to find our individual edge, the precipice from where our own adventures begin.
Join us and let’s see how deep the rabbit hole goes.
Our next session will be Thursday 22nd October at 8.00pm, hosted by Brooks Bebon.
For this meeting we will be discussing David Mitchell's latest work "Utopia Avenue" in its totality. So, if you don't want anything spoiled for you make sure that you've read the whole novel!
Please try and do the reading beforehand, but don't let that discourage you from showing up! We are an open and ever-growing group with a wide-range of readers. Each meeting is a stand-alone discussion, so don't let missing one prevent you from coming to another session.
