We are biography readers who enjoy sharing their experiences. Presentations are participants’ responsibility. It is optional for participants to do a presentation. We discover fresh facts about notable men and women from backgrounds as varied as politics, literature, art, film, theater, music, science and sports. Not all are of heroic proportions. Some of the best life stories are about people who have fallen into oblivion but lived interesting lives. Controversial personalities add particular spice to discussions.
