Bluets by Maggie Nelson
Read with us an intimate portrait of the author's relationship with the color blue. Bluets is a book for the heartbroken and the lonely ones. It's neither an essay nor a novel. It's its own thing and one of the best books I've read in a long time.
“Suppose I were to begin by saying that I had fallen in love with a color. Suppose I were to speak this as though it were a confession; suppose I shredded my napkin as we spoke. It began slowly. An appreciation, an affinity”. Maggie Nelson, Bluets

Who is moderating the book club?
Hi! I’m Alan Sobrino, a book artist from Mexico City, based in L.A., who works under the imprint Errant Press. During the last years, I’ve also worked as a cultural promoter. My last project was the development of a public library inside Jardín Botanico Culiacán (Culiacan Botanical Garden). A little oasis to promote books related to nature and art in one of the most violent cities in the world (Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico). After completing the project I had the opportunity of organizing a book club around the classics and started another one with my close friends. I think that after some years I finally get what makes a great book club great, and it's the ability to explore ideas with a collective approach. No experts, no preassure. Just some humans observing ideas at a distance, as a team.
I’m convinced that sharing books and collective reading are very healthy community habits, and I feel it’s a great way to grow stronger, as a group, during these harsh times.
Hope to see you soon, bookfriend!
How does a book club session look like?
During each 2hr session, participants will be encouraged to answer questions regarding the book and share details about their own relationship with the books.
Where is the book club?
We host the book clubs in two modalities: online or in person. The online session happens on Zoom, while in real life sessions take place in Culver City, CA, convinient for the Los Angeles community.
How can I get a copy of the books?
You can borrow it from your local library or buy it from your local bookstore. You can also use OverDrive to find a digital copy using your library card. If none of these options works for you, please let us know at email@example.com.
