What we're about

“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library” and if it’s any Paradise at all, then lying on the entry table, spine uncracked, ink still warm, will be Borges’ “Collected Fictions.”

It is the aim of this society to read every piece in this book, along with the occasional essay and poem.

We will be meeting every other week to discuss one-two pieces at length.

I hope you can join us.
