What we're about

We are an eclectic mix of readers, living in or near Silver Spring. If you can meet on the 3rd Sunday afternoon of each month, and like to read literary fiction, some classics, and occasional non-fiction, then this book club is for you.

It's important to know that I keep this Meetup to no more than 50 members. If we are at our threshold, you will be wait listed; apologies in advance if this happens to you.

We avoid mass fiction (like John Grisham, Janet Evanovich, Dan Brown, etc.). Literary fiction is a term commonly used to distinguish serious fiction from popular or mass fiction. According to Wikipedia: "In broad terms, literary fiction focuses more on style, psychological depth, and character, whereas mainstream commercial fiction (the page-turner) focuses more on narrative and plot."

Here are some of the books we've read:

The Underground Railroad - Colson Whitehead

City of Thieves - Dave Benioff

The Diver's Clothes Lie Empty - Vendela Vida

Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania - Erik Larson

The Master & Margarita - Mikhail Bulgakov

The Light Between Oceans - M.L. Stedman

Middlesex - Jeffery Euginides

The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane - Lisa See
