Literature lover,

A book club is a great way meet new people, broaden our horizons and read unexpected books. No matter how serious and silly our discussions might get, exchanging meaningful conversations it's of great value and fun! Don't you agree?

The winner of this election is Man's Search For Meaning. Based on his own experience and the stories of his patients, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. At the heart of his theory, known as logotherapy, is a conviction that the primary human drive is not pleasure but the pursuit of what we find meaningful.

Enjoy your read and let's discuss about the ideas, impressions, feelings it brought about, over good food, a drink and excellent company.

Looking forward to our conversations.
