The Ann Arbor Classics Book Group meets monthly on Sundays at 3pm at Nicola's Books in the Westgate Shopping Center on Ann Arbor's West Side to discuss selections from Boxall's "1001 books you must read before you die." (The ground floor of the UofM Michigan Union, our location for the last couple years, will be used as a backup if for some reason Nicola's is not available.)
Group members vote online for monthly selections. There are dues of $1.00 for each meetup attended (to help cover the monthly meetup.com fee).
Occasionally, we will have a special event such as after discussion dinner, coffee meet and greet, scrabble get-together or a book swap.
This group is largely driven by its members, so make sure to voice your opinions on the group message board. Don't forget, the full list of 1001 books can be found under our group files in excel format. Download it and see how many you have read! A list of past selections and a guide to which books are available in audio-format and how to obtain them can also be found under group files.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
