Civil Reading Group

Civil Reading Group meets every other month at the Civil Life Brewery. It is open to the public. Please RSVP to Patrick.  

2017 Reading List (More info on the blog!)

I would like to invite Civil Readers to join me on this rare journey. This year we will meet just three times (April, August, and December) to discuss the Inferno, the Purgatorio, and the Paradiso. If you’ve ever thought you should read Dante but haven’t had the gumption to sit down and actually do it, now is the time.

There are excellent translations by Dorothy Sayers, John Ciardi, Allen Mandelbaum, Charles Hollander, Robert Pinsky, and many others. Ideally you might read excerpts from several translations and pick one that speaks to you.

A stunning 3-in-1 deluxe edition of one of the great works of Western literature
