More Information:

Our book discussions have generated lively and thoughtful conversations on genre works since January 1999. Each meeting is facilitated by a book club member who has volunteered to lead the discussion of a particular book. If this sounds interesting to you, please join us at a future discussion.

Meetings begin at 7:00 PM with discussion beginning around 7:30 PM on the day in question (usually the fourth Thursday of the month, although we have a combined November/December meeting on the first Thursday in December) at the home of Rob and Peter, 1425 S Street NW, Washington, DC, within walking distance of both the U Street-Cardozo Metro station on the Green line, and the Dupont Circle station on the Red line. For more detailed directions, contact Rob.
