What we're about

The Hyde Park Book Club Meetup is a community of readers and discussion groups created by and for people interested in engaging with books. Here you will find announcements of events suggested and hosted by individual members and coordinated by volunteer organizers.

Started from a monthly book discussion at members’ homes in the Hyde Park, Illinois area, we’d like to expand this forum in several ways. First, we'd like to publicize additional area book discussions, so if you organize a group, please get in touch today! Second, we’d also like to add diversity to Meetup events in terms of meeting days, times and locations, as well as subject matter and genres.

Our members bring a wide variety of backgrounds to our get-togethers. If you're new to book discussions and are looking for where to get started, check us out! If you've been participating in book groups for some time and want a space to connect with other serious readers, this might be a great place for you, too.

We welcome members seeking collaborative explorations of books and other writings and respectful (but not dull) discourse. Won’t you join us soon?
