About the Proust Society of America
Founded in 1997 by then Center director Harold Augenbraum, the Society's mission is to encourage the reading, study and enjoyment of the work of Marcel Proust. The Society presents lectures for the public and hosts discussion groups on his work.
About the Proust Reading Groups
The Center frequently hosts a variety of groups to read, study and discuss Proust's masterpiece, À la recherche du temps perdu. Starting in fall 2016, we're offering Proust I led by Anka Muhlstein. The group will read In Search of Lost Time over two years. Click here for more information on the group and to sign up.
