The Moderns began in 2010 as a book club devoted to reading Hemingway and his peers. We've since evolved into a club that chooses books from the Modern Library's list of the 100 best 20th Century English language novels. It's a great list that takes us from Sherwood Anderson to Virginia Woolf and many luminaries in between. Please join us as we discover and reread some of the best works of the modern age.

Every discussion has drawn an interesting group of people from all walks of life and all ages. We choose the books off the list with a poll each month (polls are under the "More" tab). We typically meet the last Sunday of the month at the Ukrainian East Village restaurant.

A note on the restaurant: Everyone orders something whether it's a full dinner or soup or appetizers or just a cup of tea. They have been taking great care of us for years and their service is much appreciated--and the food is good. If you RSVP "yes" but for whatever reason can't attend, please change your RSVP to "no" so we have a better headcount when we tell the restaurant how many seats to set up.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
