Classics Book Group

Classics Book Group is back, and this year the theme is American literature through the decades. Join us on the second Saturday of each month at noon (except for February's meeting, which is on the third Saturday) to discuss these gems, beginning with Louisa May Alcott and the 1860s and ending with Shirley Jackson and the 1960s. 

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 percent off in the month before discussion.

If you want to talk about the books or share anything with your fellow classics lovers between meetings, join our Facebook group.
