Dive into some of the best books of the past three centuries, and discover a new favorite along the way. Each month we’ll meet to discuss classic novels across multiple literary traditions and genres. From well-worn masterpieces to under-considered hidden gems, we’ll explore what makes – and remakes – great fiction.

Anythink York Street offers a monthly morning book club with a very different style: we choose a theme for the meeting, and you choose the book you want to read based on that theme. Each person discusses their choice. It’s a fun way to discover new authors and books while reading a title that speaks to you. Bring your pick and a morning beverage, and we’ll talk books. This month’s theme: books by an African-American author. Appropriate for adults. No registration required.
