We are the Socialist Reading Group of Houston. Come join us every week to study classical texts in progressive thought. Each week, we read a chapter from a book, a political pamphlet, or an essay and then carry on a collective discussion about the reading. We are not affiliated with any political Party, organization, or club. Our primary purpose is to increase our understanding of socialism, in both realms of theory and practice. We do not have any leaders, only organizers and everything is on a purely voluntary basis. Each week, a different person volunteers to guide us through the text, in whatever way he or she desires to do so. Everyone is welcome to attend. People from diverse political backgrounds come to our group. In the past, we have read works by Marx, Lenin, Engels, Rosa Luxemburg, Marxist economists, and less well known socialist authors. Everyone is welcome to attend, regardless of political orientation.

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.
