Looking for friendly, lively, and focused discussion of fiction, drama, and poetry, but not for long selections?  Then you'll enjoy our group.  We meet at the Bellevue Regional Library twice a month (1st and 3rd Wednesdays) from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. starting in October and running through June.

Most of our selections for the coming year can be found in Literature: A Portable Anthology edited by Janet E. Gardner, 2nd edition (note well: there are 3 editions, each with slightly different contents). It is available used online for a reasonable price. The texts can be found online or at the library as well.

Come join us in exploring and exchanging ideas!
