What we’re about

This is a book group devoted to classic literature. Together we read and discuss novels from the time period 1800-1950.

We believe in the value of books, as well as the value of friendship and socializing. Our discussions are respectful and welcoming of all viewpoints. We want for everyone to participate and for no one to dominate the discussion. We make room for lots of laughter and fun, and a drink or two if you're so inclined.

Beginning with the May 2023 book group meetings, this Meetup will have two sessions on consecutive Monday evenings: the "Allenham Court" group, followed one week later by the "Barton Cottage" group. The two groups take their names from locations mentioned in Chapter 9 of Jane Austen's novel "Sense and Sensibility." Both sessions will discuss the same book.

Because our meetings usually have a wait list, we ask that you please keep your RSVP updated. Updating your RSVP will then allow someone from the wait list to join the meeting. If your plans change, that is completely okay -- just be sure to change your meetup RSVP accordingly prior to the meeting. A no-show can be grounds for being removed from the meetup group.

If possible, please consider including in your member profile a picture with your face. It makes it easier to identify who is who at the meetings, especially if you are new to the group. We are a welcoming and social group and we want to get to know you!
