About the American Club of Madrid (ACM) Book Club
The ACM Book Club is a monthly event for ACM members to meet and discuss a selected book. We focus on non-fiction books related to personal and professional growth. We aim to select practical books that have a scientific basis in fields such as behavioral economics, positive psychology or neuroscience. We may sometimes select a podcast episode or TED Talk for discussion.
Please join us for any or all our our monthly discussions. We meet on the 4th Tuesday of the month.
Not an ACM member? You are welcome to join us for one meeting to try it out.
We hope to create a one-stop shop for news and events celebrating our club and the American culture. Let us know if YOU have an idea for post you think would be a valuable (or fun) tidbit.
