What we're about

Hi! This group is a friendly bunch of readers leaning toward the literary end of the reading spectrum. If you like unconventional, even iconoclastic, books, this group may be worth a try.

Please treat your fellow members with respect and kindness. No personal attacks; no bullying.

Answers to some FAQs:

This book group meets often but you don't need to attend every session to get something out of it. During COVID, our meetings are a mix of in person (outdoors as weather permits) and virtual.

We discuss the book on the scheduled date. Most members will have finished the book by that date. You can still attend if you haven't finished it, but be aware that we will likely discuss the ending if you're sensitive to spoilers.

The books are selected on an annual basis by regular members and me (the group admin). We read mostly literary fiction, with the odd literary non-fiction selection.
