Discuss Jane Austen's Persuasion in one of H Street's best loved coffee shops

Read Jane Austen's skinniest novel, and my personal favorite; Persuasion. Then come chat with us about it at Sova cafe, one of  H Street's best establishments! They make a beautiful Jasmine tea.(:

*Regarding payments. Dear Readers, I'm including a price for meetups with the intent of covering biannual costs of having a meetup website fees. I will not charge for meetups when my own output has been covered. Thank-you for understanding, and feel free to let me know if you have any difficulty with the paypal set up. I do NOT want this to be a deterrent for any of you!


How to Get to Sova:


Take red line to union and walk 15 minutes up H Street. Or take blue/orange line to Eastern Market and walk aprox 20 minutes to H Street.


If you have a bike or rideshare there are also bike docks accessible to Sova.


If you prefer to use a bus instead of walking, take the  X2 or X9 bus that goes up H Street from China Town (H and 7th)  and Union station (H street to west of Union station).


For those of you driving, there is plenty of free two hour residential parking near Sova.

    Kelly; yes we will do discussions of novels! February is Wuthering Heights (a darker journey than Jane Austen's novels, but promising a good discussion!). Stephanie; Thanks so much for the suggestions! We'll keep them in mind. EVERYONE talks about Sticky Fingers. We really need to try it!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
