From a member:

I hate to disrupt the enjoyable and fascinating debate between Huenemann and Kleiner, but I just wanted to remind any interested in attending the Elitist Book Club meetings this semester, they will be Mondays at 6 pm at the Quadside Cafe attached to Kleiner’s favorite library ever (haha).
Sadly, dear friend Dan will not be able to attend, but he has expressed to me his hope that we can continue on, which we will! The optional reading (due to availability and time) this week is the first book of Paradise Lost, and we will discuss it and any other ideas for books, as well as anything people would like to bring up or vent out.
All are welcome! I’ll be glad to fight for space and yank out extra chairs from under other people to provide for guests. First meeting is tomorrow [Monday] night!
