What we're about

We are a community from many walks of life that enjoys connecting through books. We love welcoming new members into our discussions - join us!

During COVID we meet online. However, once it's safe we'll return to meeting in coffee shops.

Typical Agenda
😁 First 15 minutes: Greetings and introductions
🤔 Middle 60 minutes: Break out into small group discussions about the book
😭 Final 15 minutes: Closing thoughts and goodbyes

RSVP Guidelines
😇 Now and then, we all experience a busier month than expected. If this happens to you and you realize you probably won't have time to read the book before an event that you RSVP-ed to, please mark yourself as "Not Going" as soon as possible so that another member can have your seat.

About Our Books
📖 We discuss one fiction book and one nonfiction book each month chosen by voting in our Slack group. Some of us prefer attending the fiction discussions, others prefer the nonfiction discussions, and plenty of us like to mix it up! (We've also been known to discuss amazing short stories and poetry from time to time...)

Shakespeare Discussion: Romeo and Juliet

Online event

Hi readers! Join us to discuss William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

(Personally, I've always been intimidated by Shakespeare, but reading his complete works is on my bucket list, so here we are. I've found using SparkNotes's "No Fear Shakespeare" series is a good way to make sure I don't miss anything. "No Fear Shakespeare" presents the text in both Shakespeare's words and in modern english. It's available for free here https://www.sparknotes.com/nofear/shakespeare - if you play around with your browser width or text size when reading, you can get rid of the ads... Alternatively, this series is sold as books and ebooks if you're more into that sort of reading experience.)
