The Letters Republic blog compiled a "Master List" of books using 24 different "best books" lists and some specific scoring rules. We use this list to generate ideas for books to read, including some more difficult texts.
Then we meet and discuss! We meet the 3rd Thursday of the month, 7pm. Pre-covid, we met at Atomic Fern in downtown Durham. During covid, we moved to zoom and had wonderful discussions. Now (Summer 2021), we are going to stick with zoom for book discussions, but also look for some in person events to meet in person. These could include author events, movie adaptations, etc.
We'd love to have volunteers to select books and lead discussions. Please contact us if you are interested.
