Join us to read and discuss classic literature. We will read great works that have changed the face of writing, influenced society and endured the test of time. Past authors we have read include, among others, Cervantes, James, Kawabata, Morrison, Flaubert, Austen, Waugh, Dickens, Wilde, Nabokov, Hemingway, Shakespeare and Homer. We meet once a month in the home of one of our members.

Book selections for each meeting are made at the prior meeting. The only exception is when we choose a book two months out to allow for a longer book. Each person at the meeting throws out suggestions and we discuss until we reach something resembling consensus. It can be messy, but the process keeps long-standing members invested. I also believe that our selections are varied enough that we attract a variety of new people.

We are a diverse group who is always looking for new perspectives.

If you are curious about what we have read, there is a file containing a nearly complete list of our past meetings uploaded under files.
