Group description:
Our intention is to read a novel roughly every two weeks (no more than ~300 pages), and then come together to discuss that novel’s themes and ideas, largely from a philosophical perspective, though we’ll also touch upon writer’s craft and the literary construction of the novel.

Conversations will be lightly moderated so that we remain on track, but the substance of our discussions will mostly be determined by the concerns and interests of those in attendance.

Please send a private message if you’d like to be added to this group’s Slack channel, where conversation may occur prior to our biweekly meetings.
