Read a good book. Meet new and interesting people who've read it too.  Feed your brain...and your stomach.

For a list of our past reads, please see the calendar or the photo album.  Our focus is on finding worthwhile literature and still covering a variety of eras, countries and fiction (and once in a while, non-fiction) genres.  We try to find books that are a manageable length (200-350 pages) and that make us think.

(Our members are well-educated, but note that the majority of us do not have English/literature degrees.  We are just smart people who like a good book and meeting new friends.)

We sit in smaller groups at the restaurants - usually 4-8 people per table, so that everyone can participate in a friendly, pressure-free environment and get to know the others at their table.

Helpful hints:

As we continue to grow, keeping a manageable size and a good balance of old and new members is important to us...which is why we ask you to please fill out the profile questions in order to be fairly considered for membership.  (We also require current, identifiable photos for all members in order to join, and to be maintained thereafter).

Our policies are now found at the "Pages" link, and are enforced.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
