Book Club @ Plexal 5 August 2020 @ 5:00 am

Join us online or in Plexal Park for Book Club @ Plexal on the first Wednesday of each month at 5pm!

Our book club will gather members together to discuss our favourite fiction and non-fiction titles that relate to technology, innovation, startup life, big ideas, company culture and leadership. We’ll also be serving you a themed cocktail each month for anyone who attends in person.

What we’re reading

On 5 August we’ll be dissecting Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou. The book is a page-turner about the rise and fall of Theranos, the now-infamous multibillion-dollar biotech startup headed by Elizabeth Holmes. The book received critical acclaim, winning the 2018 Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award. Bring your opinions and don’t be shy!

We’ll also vote for what we’re reading next, the contenders are:

  • Neuromancer by William Gibson, one of the best-known works in the cyberpunk genre
  • Billion Dollar Burger: Inside Big Tech’s Race for the Future of Food by Chase Purdy
  • How To Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi

How to join

Our book club is open to all Plexal members and Here East tenants.

RSVP on Eventbrite for your Zoom link if you’re joining in virtually or to attend in person in Plexal Park (numbers will be capped for health and safety reasons).

If you’d like a copy of the book (and you’re a Plexal member), email
