What we're about

If you read a lot of well-reviewed contemporary fiction and nonfiction, then this book club is for you! Each month, our members will vote on a work of fiction and/or nonfiction, mostly from the New York Times notable books list from the past 3-4 years. After reading the selection, we will come together and engage in a lively, in-depth discussion.

The book club will meet midweek in a Metro-accessible location (these days we meet in a cafe in Dupont Circle). If one month's pick doesn't interest you, wait until next month when we choose new titles! Our readers are passionate about books and our discussions are lively, interesting, and enlightening.

Happy reading, and we hope to see you at our future meetings!
