This discussion group is currently oversubscribed. Please write to Clive Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to be put on a waiting list for membership.
This thriving, 25-year old discussion group meets at 6:00 p.m. on the third Monday of each month in the Trustees' Room (unless otherwise specified due to holiday closings, etc.) to discuss works of literature selected by the group, from the ancient classics to contemporary best sellers.
Members take turns leading the discussions and engage in active e-mail correspondence about the book currently being read. Our Literary Conversations continue at a local restaurant following the meeting, and all members are invited.
Note that during the Covid-19 outbreak our meetings are held via Zoom.
