Looking for a group of people who share your love of literature? Your search is over. For almost a decade, reading groups have gathered at the Rosenbach for evenings of discussion led by some of the area’s most notable scholars.
Each year, the Rosenbach offers between four and six Reading Groups. Each group focuses on a different novel or a collection of shorter works. Past examples include Moby-Dick, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, and the Romantic Poets. Courses typically run between four and nine sessions that meet at the Rosenbach, during which a specialist scholar contextualizes the work and leads the group (usually 12-15 people) in discussion. At least once during the course, the group examines related rare books, manuscripts, and other items found in the Rosenbach’s collection.
Registration for Spring 2013 courses is open. To receive information about future Reading Groups in advance, sign up for our e-news below.
