Greetings literates!
You are all heartily invited to the first monthly meetup of the Helsinki IN Literature Group!

The overall vision for these meetings will be to get together and talk at leisure about everything that we love in books, fiction, and in literature in general. Usual themes will be discussions about certain works/genres, about notable recent literary pieces and tendencies, sharing thoughts and opinions about favorite books (which the current meeting will be), and there are a few trivia surprises from the world of creative writing intended ;), but let's not preempt life.

Our first gathering will be a "sharing meeting". Everyone chooses a favorite literary work in advance and presents it, in turn, to the group. The aim is to "share" that piece with the others, to tell about what they love or hate in it, what excites them in it. The range of emotions will not be limited ;). Nor the type, or size, or genre of the book.

The only rules of engagement are:
* we draw the line at fiction (please, don't bring quarterly accounting reports);
* the works have to be translated in a sufficient number of languages, so that they would be available to anyone interested;
* don't spoil it!!!
* and don't talk about fight c... but I digress.

The venue is the very pleasant Protected content cafe in the university library. There we will be in the company of plenty of books, some sweet-tooth indulgences, and may even find some of the works that we'll discuss.

See you at the meetup!
