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 history, some biography, and other 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 Blind Assassin - Margaret Atwood

Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen

The Zookeeper's Wife - Diane Ackerman

The Picture of Dorian Gray - Oscar Wilde

The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch - Philip K. Dick

Seven Days in the Art World - Sarah Thornton

Uncommon Arrangements: Seven Portraits of Married Life in London Literary Circles 1910-1939 - Katie Roiphe

All the King's Men - Robert Penn Warren
