This book club stated in June 2002. Our meetings take place the second Sunday of the month at 3:00 p.m. The club currently consists of about 10 men and women who take turns hosting the meetings. Decisions about how the group functions are reached through consensus. Each person picks the book to be discussed at the meeting he or she is hosting and about every 6 months or so we pick the upcoming books. The meetings always take place in the City of Toronto, with the location chosen by the host. We are no longer accepting new members.

The next 5 books for 2005 are:

March 13 A Bend in the River V.S. Naipaul
April 10 Our Lady of the Lost and Found Diane Schoemperlen
May 8 Black Bird Michel Basilieres
June 12 Troll: a love story Johanna Sinisalo
