Tell us a little more about who you are, where you come from...

Originally from the suburbs of Philadelphia - I've been in NYC for about 14 years after 4 years in VA for college and 1 year in Maine. I used to work in theatre and have an MFA in dramaturgy (artistic research and script editing for plays) and then through some random twists and turns ended up in the financial sector. Avid reader and yoga enthusiast.


Hi! My name is Maria and I love books. I usually have about 4-5 books going at any one time (a mix of history, fiction, biography) and I'm always looking for book recommendations from fellow readers.

What Maria is saying about this Meetup Group

I really enjoyed my first meeting and I plan on coming to more.
