The Cliff Dwellers Book Club

We have completed an extremely successful inaugural year of the Cliff Dwellers Book Club. Our participants are truly committed to the art of lively conversation, and we had eleven engaging and memorable sessions. We begin at 11:00 am, once a month, usually on the fourth Saturday of the month. Many of us continue the conversation over lunch at the club. The selection of our books is a mix of Chicago authors, past and present. This year five of the authors joined us for the discussions.The 2015 reading list is listed below.
