Online Group Meetings

Several of the Athenaeum’s existing discussion and writing groups are continuing to meet by either conference call or ZOOM. See the center column for a list of the groups and their meeting times. Some groups are still working out logistics, so please check back here for updates. We are also working on some new programs. We will send updates as we have them!

If you have an idea for a new group discussion, send your proposal to and we will review your suggestion.
