Great Conversations

For the past eight years our group has been discussing short stories, essays and poetry, with a few longer readings mixed in. The subjects of our chats? This, that and the other thing. We’ve floated deep into the Heart of Darkness with Joseph Conrad; in “Roman Fever,” Edith Wharton allowed us to eavesdrop on a romantic rivalry between two wealthy matrons; Thucydides introduced us to power politics between Athens and Sparta with the tiny isle of Melos as the prize.

We hope you’ll join us on the fourth Wednesday of every month from 2-4 PM for smart, friendly conversation about shoes and ships and sealing wax, not to mention cabbages and kings, and who knows what else? If you’d like to sign up, or have questions, please contact Vera Mulherin at
