Welcome back! This week, we kick off Weird: The Power of Being an Outsider in an Insider World by Olga Khazan.
The plan this week was to read chapters one through three. Quick programming note, I’ve actually made a book club calendar you can just add to iCal or Google Calendar if it makes it easier to keep track of dates.
Some questions to talk over in the comments:
Chapter two is about “The realization.” What’s a moment you realized you were different?
Have you ever felt excluded for being different? Did any of the people in the book stand out to you as someone you recognized?
Khazan writes about how weirdness has “developed its more positive, quirky meaning in these past decades.” What is a weird place you enjoy? What is a weird place you would like to remain weird?
Any hopes or expectations for the book?
Comment below, or just come back later and read them, we’ll be back Feb. 6. after reading chapters 4 to 9!
