Come join us in discussing great works of literature. Along with Shakespeare we may read authors like Homer, Goethe, Dickens, and others. 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?

We are looking for members who will do some serious reading and be capable of intelligent discussion.  A background in literature, philosophy, history and/or drama would be ideal.
