Washington DC Chapter

Thank you for your interest in the Washington, D.C. chapter of the Booker Tea Reading Group. Founded in 1997, we meet monthly to discuss award-winning and notable world literature. The Washington chapter is also chiefly responsible for the annual development of the main reading list followed by members in Washington D.C. and in Berlin, Germany.

Generally, the Washington chapter meets the 3rd Sunday of each month from 1 to 3 p.m. in neighborhoods and cafés throughout the metropolitan area.

When privately hosted, members host in metro-accessible, pet- and smoke-free homes and apartments on a strictly voluntary basis. Guests are to bring a vegetarian dish, salad, or dessert to share in a potluck brunch. (Being able to host a group discussion is not a requirement for participation or membership in our group.)

Lately, the group has been meeting publicly at Teaism Penn Quarter. The location is metro-accessible and offers well-priced lunch items of various types. To join the group there, please sign up via the Booker Tea Reading Group’s Meetup.com page. Upcoming titles, dates, and times are posted on that site. Membership is, as always, free of charge — simply bring your enthusiasm and good will for a great discussion!

If you have other questions, email the moderator, Kathy Sawyer, with your questions at info@thebookertea.com. You will be contacted promptly!
