Welcome to the Boston Area Swarthmore Alumni Book Group's website. Our group has been around since 1998 and serves Boston-area alumni of Swarthmore College, as well as parents, friends, spouses, and other assorted folks. As those in the class of 1983 can tell you, you need not have graduated in the Amphitheater in order to attend our meetings.


Four next year, each book group member needs to suggest one novel to read, adhering to these guidelines: the book needs to be a novel written by a woman or non-white male and be under 300 pages. If we get more novels than we can read in a year, then we will conduct some kind of selection process as in the past.

Please send Steve the name of one book that you would like our group to read and discuss that follows the guidelines above by July 15th.
