I want to go to a book group where I'll be challenged by the other readers and where I'll be introduced to great new literature. I'm an english major and I miss the days of getting together with classmates to ardently discuss books.
Margaret Atwood, Carol Shields, David Mitchell, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, Thomas Hardy, Alison Weir, Ann Patchett
Handmaid's Tale, Great Gatsby, One Last Look, Cloud Atlas, the Moonstone, Persuasion, Jane Eyre, The Girl with Glass Feet, Elizabeth I (bio by Alison Weir), State of Wonder.
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.
I really enjoyed my first meeting and I plan on coming to more.
