This is a group for those who love ideas, culture, great conversations, and staying active all year long. We read works of (primarily) fiction with a strong sense of time and place, ideally written by an author from the locale in which it’s set. Traveling the world in our reading, it seems only fitting that the discussion be also on the move! So we take our conversations out-of-doors for a walk around our wonderful local Twin cities neighborhoods, lakes, parks, etc. and conclude for final thoughts and conversations at a local establishment for well-deserved refreshments. Example readings might include: “The Blind Assassin” by Margaret Atwood – depression era Ontario, Canada; “Gilead” by Marilynne Robinson – 1950s Iowa; or “The Book of Salt” by Monique Truong – 1920s Vietnam, Paris, Exile.

See our group's "Pages" section for a list of past book selections and a shortlist of future reads.

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.
