Strangers is an online, non-fiction book club. Our goal is to carve out a secluded corner of the web where we can read, write, and learn together. We mostly read about the roles of technology in society.
We also read across learning and education; anthropology and philosophy; along with language, writing, and design. We avoid fiction, self-help, and business. We prefer to read books that are distant from the present, and we ignore best sellers.
We're different from other book clubs because we run things like a small, remote-first company. That means we treat people right. We're committed to building the kind of nourishing online environment that we all want to be a part of.
To maintain a tighter group, membership is capped at 40 people. We are a global group of readers, writers, and thinkers who spend a lot of time questioning our world. If that sounds like you, we'd get along.
