**10/26/14:  We are not currently accepting new members**

Looking for like-minded folks who dig super-contemporary fiction! If you read newer stuff like Murakami, Junot Diaz, Jonathan Franzen, DFW, and Jennifer Egan (also the best of non-fiction) then I think you'll like us. We really do discuss the books, it's not just wine and chit-chat.  Meetings take place once a month in venues accessible by the blue line. Ladies & gents who are serious about reading and want awesome book club selections, please join!

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