This a book club based around the Persephone Books series from the UK (for more info: http://www.persephonebooks.co.uk/). If you're not familiar with Persephone Books, they are fiction and non-fiction books written by forgotten (mostly female, mostly British) authors of the twentieth century and they are amazing! If you are into feminism, literature, history and/or anglophilia, you should join us!
PLEASE NOTE: Participation in the club will probably require a small investment in purchasing the books each month (they are about $27 each month for the book plus shipping from London) but you might also be able to find some of them used or through the library.) I'm hoping we can find ways to offset the cost, perhaps by not charging meeting fees or gathering at each others' homes, etc.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
