Come join us in discussing great works of literature. Along with Shakespeare we will read authors like Homer, Goethe, Dickens, and discuss them in a relaxed social setting. What we read will be determined by member preferences, as much as possible. Our approach will be humanist, open-minded and unrestrained by religious or political beliefs in asking the central question of all literature: What is the nature of our existence?
