Welcome to the Life Readers: Classics Study Group at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library. Life Readers is a library-sponsored book discussion program for people interested in reading classic literature. Our group focuses on close textual analysis of the readings over a period of several months, supplemented by biographical, historical, and critical information that I introduce at each meeting. New members are very welcome, and I will do everything possible to guide you through our reading adventure.

In previous sessions, our group has read Anna Karenina, A Dance To the Music of Time, Madame Bovary, and War and Peace, among other works. Life Readers was featured in the Chicago Tribune’s “Printers Row” in 2013. You can read about us here.

Our next series begins in January, 2020. Click here to learn more.
