Poetry/Book/Banter club in the Geneva/Lausanne area

Hi all

Back in 2010 or so, I regularly met with a group of lovely members of this site for an occasional evening drink and Poetry/Book reading chit-chat in Morges.

It's been a while, and my wife and I would be happy to meet some new folk from the Geneva/Lausanne area to start these gatherings again.

Is this something those in the region would be up to?

Just so it doesn't look like a lot of effort, before dwelling into the deep end of for example talking about an entire book, I think starting with some poetry would be an easy way into making some friends and so on.

If we choose a place like Morges, I do have a few free seats in the car for those who may need it.

Happy to hear if this is of interest

Best,

Heikki

Omg.

I can't believe this!



Poetry is good, as always.

Oh hey there MusicChick, been a long time!

It's been quite a few years so my memory is faltering, however the meetings were always really fun

My wife would really love to make more friends, so something like this would be wonderful for us!

Indeed, this is a great initiative! It will be lovely to get to know her and we got cca 10 years to catch up. Anyone into books/poetry/art - let's hang out.

Re: Poetry/Book/Banter club in the Geneva/Lausanne area

Yay! Let's do it

I need to go see if that bar is still open in Morges. It was nice as it was quiet in the evenings, I think we did our meetings on Wednesdays or Thursdays, didn't we? Or we can always go for another place if there are recommendations, we just need something that's not too loud or crowded.

I'll setup a proposal for a meetup in a few days time (to give this some visibility), and we can start off simple and go from there. With all the mobile phones and tablets we have these days, I'm sure we all will have a poem or two we can share right from our pockets, purses, and so on

Have a nice evening and take care!

Re: Poetry/Book/Banter club in the Geneva/Lausanne area

Could also be a discussion about art and the like, my wife paints so there's always that too.

In any case, poetry and books are always a good way to break the ice, and then we work from there as befits us all

So for anyone in the region, show your interest and let's go for it! Bring your partners too, the more the merrier
