Sign Up for a Reading Group


Readers, rejoice! It's time to announce the spectacular line-up of our 2017 Spring Reading Groups.


This season, you can read long (Thackeray’s Vanity Fair) or short (Henry James’s stories). You can experience the wonders of Postmodern Fiction and the menace of Literary Crime Novels. Silenced Voices will unearth characters muted in earlier masterpieces. Other groups will explore the writings of David Foster Wallace, or tackle thematic connections in Contemporary Young Adult Fiction, Passing Strange, and the Literature of Sociopolitical Derangement.

 

The winter/spring schedule has something for everyone, so find your new reading group on the full list below:
