This is a group for anyone who loves reading and talking about literary fiction. We typically read a lot of literary prize winners, and primarily fiction, though we do choose a nonfiction book around twice a year.
We usually meet on the last or next to last Thursday of every month to discuss our current book selection, any number of book related topics, and other random things. We love new people and strong opinions!
Our discussions are substantive and in-depth, and we appreciate a wide range of thoughts and opinions on the books we read. Admittedly we tend to range towards the liberal and socially progressive in our views and book choices.
Disclaimer: In general, I don't like to censor anyone's speech, especially in a place where I love a good debate about a book. But my general policy is that if you want to use your critique of a book to say something racist, sexist, homophobic or transphobic, then I will call you out and I won't be particularly polite about it. You can say what you want, but I prefer that people not use language that is derogatory towards other people's existence.
