What we're about

Here's the idea...

The Letters Republic blog compiled a "Master List" of books using 24 different "best books" lists and some specific scoring rules. We'll 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, at Atomic Fern in downtown Durham.

We'd love to have volunteers to select books and lead discussions. Please contact us if you are interested.
