Social and literary critic, NYU professor, and widely acclaimed writer of long and short fiction, Zadie Smith exploded onto the world literary scene in 2000 with her first novel, "White Teeth."  Listed by Time Magazine as one of the "100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005," it won "multiple honors, including the 2000 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction, the 2000 Whitbread Book Award in category best first novel, the Guardian First Book Award, the Commonwealth Writers First Book Prize, and the Betty Trask Award."

Reading group meetings start at 7:30 pm, and generally end around 9:30.  Anyone who has read the month’s selection is invited to take part; new participants are welcome: no long-term commitment is required.  If you plan to attend, please e-mail or call the hosts at least two days before the meeting, so they will know how many people to expect, and so you may be notified in the event that the location should change, as sometimes happens.  If you have questions or suggestions, please contact Peter Greenfield at

not-quite-up-to-date list of books discussed by the reading group since 1991 is available online.
