Words and Pitchers is an informal gathering of book lovers, history buffs, pop culture fans and friendly Anglophones. Once a month, the second Tuesday, we assemble to discuss a pre-decided text, usually a short story easily downloaded from this website.
Discourse often gets rowdy as special pitcher prices are offered by the King George, just the thing needed to lubricate any shy tongues.
Words and Pitchers has a standard format. We begin by learning a little about the author and era of the set text, then move on to the nitty-gritty of the story: use of symbols and motifs, character analysis, genre and literary style and more. We finish up with further reading suggestions, with most members at this point being happily inebriated and intellectually satisfied.
Words and Pitchers is open to all and is free of charge. We start at 8 p.m. and typically terminate just before the last trains do.
