This Meetup is past

12 people went


We’re trying something different this winter with our literature reading series! Based on popular demand among lit group members, we’ll be structuring the winter much like our well-loved 3-month summer reading series of longer works. We’ll meet on Tuesdays, January 9th through March 27th.

This winter, we’ll be diving into Middlemarch, a Study of Provincial Life [masked]) by George Eliot (pseudonym for writer and translator Mary Ann Evans)—which Virginia Woolf famously called “one of the few English novels written for grown-up people.” Page breakdowns per meeting will be posted soon.

Please note: This is a 12-week series. When you sign up for the first session, you are signing up for the entire series. You do not need to sign up for all 12 events; we’ll add you to the list for the rest. Here are the page divisions for the series:

January 9th: Chapters 1-7
January 16th: Chapters 8-14
January 23rd: Chapters 15-21
January 30th: Chapters 22-28
February 6th: Chapters 29-36
February 13th: Chapters 37-42
February 20th: Chapters 43-50
February 27th: Chapters 51-56
March 6th: Chapters 57-62
March 13th: Chapters 63-69
March 20th: Chapters 70-78
March 27th: Chapter 79 - “Finale”
