Our Reading Groups

 

Are you looking to catch up on some great novels you may have missed? Or perhaps you’re interested in exploring a new writer or literary period? Our Spring Reading Groups offer a wide variety of classic and contemporary fiction.

 

You could explore James Baldwin's America through his masterful prose. Looking for something longer? Sheridan Hay is leading an in depth reading of Henry James’s The Princess Casamassima.

 

Searching for something more contemporary? We have offerings on magical realism in fiction by Haruki Murakami and Kelly Link. Or perhaps you’d like to take a tour through the work of two twentieth century giants: Toni Morrison and Aldous Huxley? You can select from courses on E.M. Forster and Virginia Woolf and the Harlem Renaissance.

 

Whatever you choose, our reading groups offer high-level literary discussion in an intimate, welcoming setting.
