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, Janet Collins, Marlene Dietrich, 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); "wild card" Sundays in which we choose our own biographies to read on a specific subject; and attend theme-related movies and documentaries.  Members will have an opportunity to select a book for the group.
