Next Meetup

Sun (we hope), Food, & Books Books Books!
Some of us who didn't get to attend the May discussion of "Secondhand Time", but read the book either completely, half-way, or not at all, still want to discuss it. We're making a social time of it and inviting everyone, whether or not you've read the book or any part of it. Current plans are to take the 11:10 ferry from Edmonds, which will get us to Kingston about 11:30-ish. We'll then walk a few blocks to the Kingston Ale House and have lunch together - if it's a sunny day, that may even be on the deck - and discuss "Secondhand Time", and talk about books we have read or would like to read and discuss as part of the Meetup. There are books we've never read, and will never read unless we do it as part of a group, books we love and want to talk about with others who've also read them, possible theme books that we will read over the course of a calendar year, etc. Please join us - we'd love to have your input as to books that intrigue, inspire, infuriate you, books you admire and wish you had written, books you wish everyone would read, etc. Of course, if you can't join us on that day in that place, you can leave suggestions in a post below. Two of us are planning to carpool from Seattle. If you'd like to carpool, please say so in a comment so we can plan accordingly. As always, if you plan to attend and then your plans change, for whatever reason, please update your attendance status on this site so we know not to expect you. Thanks. I hope to see you there!

What we're about

People with English Degrees, Reading Books* offers a remedy by providing an outlet for the English nerd. This group is for people who want to spend time with a work of literature and critically analyze and discuss it with a group of English enthusiasts. Additionally, we often discuss larger themes in literature such as, what makes canonical work or women and minority writers.

People with English Degrees usually meets monthly to discuss a selected text.

*People without English degrees are always welcome!
