Austen - Emma
Emma is a novel about youthful hubris and the perils of misconstrued romance. The novel was first published in 1815. As in her other novels, Austen explores the concerns and difficulties of genteel women living in Georgian–Regency England; she also creates a lively comedy of manners among her characters. This novel has also been adapted for several films, many television programmes, and a long list of stage plays.

What we're about

If you're reading this, it's because you're interested in the Great Books, also known as "the classics". Awesome! There is a misconception that the Great Books were written for specialists in philosophy or Ivy League scholars. This is simply not true. For centuries, they instructed everyone, including children.

This group is dedicated to continuing that tradition, and was formed with the idea that everyone can read, interpret, and discuss the Great Books. They cover a wide variety of subjects, including fiction, history, poetry, science, philosophy, politics, economics, religion and ethics. You can see what we're currently reading by checking out the "Featured Meetup" below.

But we don't just meet to discuss books, we have stimulating conversations about life! We talk about everything from good, evil, justice, freedom, love, art, God, man, beauty, truth, war and peace.
