What we’re about

This a book club for anyone in the Washington, DC area who wants to get together to discuss works written in or about Ancient Greece or Rome. This includes drama, literature, poetry, philosophy, history and really anything else of interest to members.

All books will be read in English so no prior knowledge of Greek or Latin is needed. As long as you have an interest in these two civilizations and the motivation to tackle some of the great works they produced you will fit right in! In the spirit of democracy, members will get to vote on what they want to read next in each meeting.

Meetings will be in-person so that we can get to know each other and to make sure that discussion are casual and free flowing. We usually meet at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, but the venue may change as needed.
