The Big Three Reading Group will spend nine months reading three big novels by three big English writers, beginning with Middlemarch, by George Eliot, followed by Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South and finishing the year with Bleak House by Charles Dickens.
Please note that all meetings of this group will be held virtually on Zoom.
Reading groups have concluded for the 2022/23 season. Fall 23/Spring 24 groups will be announced this summer. Members, you will receive more information via email.
The Athenæum is deeply grateful to our wonderful volunteer leaders. Please note library reading groups are not classes or courses, but rather a way for individuals to discuss readings together, guided by both expert and amateur enthusiasts. Participants should expect discussion-based, not lecture-style meetings.
