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. Our close study reading groups of In Search of Lost Time, Proust I and II, have just finished. If you'd like more information on those groups please contact email@example.com.
For Fall 2015, we're offering the group Proust and Ancient Cultures led by Anka Muhlstein. For more information on the course and to sign up please click here.
