Our Not School our mainstays are all continuing this April, and we have one new group running so far. There will also be more Aftershow discussions, with the for #113 scheduled for Sun., 4/19 at 5:30pm Eastern. Go join the group to signal that you'll be there. If you like the podcast but haven't signed up to be a PEL Citizen, take a look here at what it offers.
First up, Mark Linsenmayer has started a group to listen to Thomas Sheehan's Stanford lecture series entitled "Historical Jesus." This ties into PEL episode #113, looking at Jesus Christ through a philosophical lens, so it should be an interesting one. The group will discuss the series over a Google Hangout later this month.
A new ongoing group has been formed to start in April on later Heidegger works led by Stevie LeValley, who previously led a group on Being and Time that lasted most of the last year. Go join it!
The Philosophical Fiction Group is planning on reading a Haruki Murakami novel, but we're still voting on which one. There's time to for anyone who joins up soon to have their say in the matter, so don't delay if you're interested. A live discussion will follow whenever the group finishes the book.
The Philosophy and Theater Group is reading part one of Philip Auslander’s From Acting to Performance: Essays in Modernism and Postmodernism, which includes the first three essays in the book (around 30 pages). New members could easily catch up in time to discuss it with us, which we plan to do over a live call in mid-April.
Also, don't forget to check the Citizens' Forum for new group proposals. If nothing stands out to you, propose something new.

Since this is a philosophy focused website, i’m going to have to vote for his novel Kafka on the Shore.
