Greetings. There is hardly anything I enjoy more than to read a good book and discuss it among thoughtful individuals! How about you?
Please join if you are interested in being an active participant in a book club focused **exclusively** on classic literature, shown on the following lists below, that has stood the test of time. If not interested exclusively in classic lit, if not willing to stick to selections from the lists below, there will not be a match with this group. The good news is that Meet Up has lots of other book clubs. ;-]
Some of us have belonged to book clubs previously that were dedicated initially to these lists, but either veered off into other more contemporary selections (some of which have not, arguably, stood the test of time), or became more social and significantly less focused on the books. That's nice, and good social interaction is key to a happy group, but let's maintain the focus primarily on the books.
So, we're seeking good conversationalists who are also good listeners, know how to give and take, share thoughts politely -- without dominating a discussion.
While this group will likely self-select toward college-educated individuals, all backgrounds are welcome -- as well as all ages, genders, orientations, ethnicities, etc.
Let us know if you can meet on the Second Tuesday monthly at about 6.30pm for an hour or so? The location will be on Market St between Noe & Sanchez Streets.
Sign up to learn more details - including the actual meeting location.
Thank you for considering this opportunity,
Mark (the organizer)
