The Intimidating Book Club: The Brothers Karamazov

West End Library

The Intimidating Book Club: The Brothers Karamazov

Overview of The Intimidating Book Club
Intended for those who have always wanted to read that one classic novel of gargantuan proportions but never did (or didn't finish). This group will read a notoriously lengthy book widely considered a classic, section by section, and meet monthly at 6:30 p.m. ET for a minimum one-hour discussion that may last through 8 p.m.

Together, we'll get to the finish line. One word at a time.
