"Coffee with Kafka" event information
"Coffee with Kafka" started several years ago as an offshoot of the Kafka Project, and a way to celebrate our common interest in Kafka.
We explore Kafka’s life and work, as well as European philosophy, literature, art and culture.
We meet 4-5 times per year in a beautiful private garden near downtown San Diego.
As per the European tradition, food and refreshments, wine and coffee are offered to spark our discussions.
The first half hour is for meeting other Kafka afficiados, socializing and making new friends.
Each time, the discussion revolves around a different Kafka topic or text, with dramatic readings from Kafka’s writings performed with humor and verve by a professional actor, Byron LaDue.
Kafka may be a “dark” writer and his work open to many interpretation, which we discuss in depth, explore his ideas, and enjoy his genius.
We feature visiting lecturers, panel discussions, film screenings, exhibitions of Kafka artifacts, and more.
We encourage member participation, and have built a core group of knowledgeable participants. New members and ideas are always welcome.
The entire event lasts two hours on Sunday afternoons. Information about upcoming events is announced on our website a month in advance.
