Meet kindred book lovers in the Bergen/Rockland County area. While we occasionally read modern classics (Lolita, Catch-22), we read mostly classic works written before 1950 (check our calendar to sample our book selection). We emphasize novels and plays important within the history of literature or have some historical interest. We have friendly, topical discussions about what we enjoyed, didn't enjoy, and found interesting in our reading while making some literate friends in the process. GROUP MEMBERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO SUGGEST BOOKS FOR FUTURE DISCUSSION (just post here, in our message board discussion). We have book discussions on the SECOND SUNDAY EACH MONTH. Please come join us as often as you can.
Some quick notes about the meetings:
*It is fine to come to the meeting if you have read some of the book, a summary of the book, or have only seen the movie.
*Please change your RSVP from a “yes” to a “no” if it turns out you can’t make it. It is the polite thing to do.
*Although you do not need to complete the book in order to participate, the scheduled reading is the main priority. The focus is on the book.
