What we're about

This is a book club for anyone interested in reading the old "Classics". Ever hear of such titles as: Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, A Tale of Two Cities, The Great Gatsby, Madame Bovary, Treasure Island, The Arabian Nights? You get the idea. We will read these timeless classics and then meet to discuss our thoughts and impressions. Of course, discussions are always a little more fun with a few refreshments/food thrown into the mix.

So, if you've ever wanted to read these types of books thinking it will be more fun to do so with a group, then this is the place for you.
