The purpose of the group is to dive into the worlds created by some of history's most famous authors: Steinbeck, Twain, Austin, Dostoevsky, and, of course, Dickens, just to name a few. If you enjoy reading classic fiction but have found no one with whom to share this passion, please join us to discuss classic literature.
This is not a group of snobs, in fact, pettiness and cattiness is best left outside. This is a group of ladies who get lost in past worlds and enjoy meeting each other there. It is a place where it is okay to be smart yet still learn from each other and some of the most creative people who ever lived.
Dickens Chicks meets at a location in Gilbert on the last Sunday of each month.
Due to an increase in the rates Meetup.com charges for groups larger than 55 members, we are limiting membership to 54 Active Members. This allows us to keep membership free for participants.
Active Members are those who RSVP and attend at least one meeting per year. Inactive Members, those who have not RSVP'd or attended a meeting in a year, will be removed to make room for new members.
Therefore, if you are interested in joining the group, please note it may take a while for a spot to open. Feel free to submit your membership request anyway. We will notify you as soon as a spot becomes available.
Previous Inactive Members are also welcome to submit a new membership request. Note however, your request will be placed on the waiting list in the order it was received.
If you're in the North Valley, you may be interested in the North Valley Women's Classic Book Club which meets in Anthem and was started by one of our former members, Colleen Hickman. For more information about that group, contact Colleen via email at email@example.com.
