This group is for anyone interested in reading biographies of famous (and not-so-famous) women of the 19th and 20th centuries -- including Coco Chanel, Frida Kahlo, Billie Holiday, Sarah Bernhardt, Eslanda Robeson, Jane Digby, Catherine the Great, and others. We meet once a month on a Sunday afternoon, at various locations in Manhattan; we also plan other events, including a "short story" Sunday (in which we each read a story by a specific author), and attend theme-related movies and documentaries.  Members will have an opportunity to select a book for the group.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
