Classics Book Group

    In 2016, Classics Book Group will be reading international fiction! On the second Saturday of each month at noon, we'll meet to discuss these gems, as listed below.

    Join us for one, some, or all of the meetings---just read the book and show up! (You don't even have to talk if you don't want to.) All books are 10% off in the month before their discussion.

    If you want to talk about the books or share a link or something in-between meetings, join our Facebook group that's just for this book group.
