What we're about
We're a society for classical literature enthusiasts, keen to discuss literary works which have not only stood the test of time, but are both brilliant and thought provoking.
The Melbourne Literary Classics Society allows members the opportunity to explore classical literature in a laid back and approachable manner. Our meetups are set in informal cafes which encourage free flowing discussion in a welcoming environment. Since literary classics are often regarded as impenetrable, dry or overly intellectual, we hope to dispel this myth by choosing books which are both accessible and enjoyable- as most classics indeed are!
New books will be listed according to our own choices and members' requests. Meetings will be held in various cafés in the Melbourne metro area on the third Sunday of each month in the late morning. Occasional special one-off meetup will be announced from time to time based on members' requests.
