Join us as we start the Maxey House Book Club! Every other month, we will get together and discuss a different book. This year's chosen books were either written by a Victorian author or are works of historical fiction set in the Victorian era.

We will meet in person in the Maxey House parlor at 3 p.m. on the 3rd Sunday of the month (unless otherwise noted). Our first meeting of the Maxey House Book Club will be on October 19th, where we will be discussing two pieces written by Edgar Allan Poe: the poem "Annabel Lee" and the short story "The Fall of the House of Usher."

If you can’t make a meeting in person or you just can't wait until the meeting to start the discussion, no problem! We are also setting up an online book club and discussion page. Join us on Goodreads, where you can find more information about the online version of the book club.

Please note that it is up to the book club participants to find their own copies of the books/works to read. While reading the books/works is not required, it is suggested in order to best participate in the discussions.
