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.

Our books for 2017-18 will include trilogies by the following authors:

Margaret Atwood—The Maddaddam Trilogy

√ Pat Barker—Regeneration Trilogy

Robertson Davies—The Deptford Trilogy

√ Amitav Ghosh—Ibis Trilogy

Naguib Mahfouz—The Cairo Trilogy

We will be reading Fifth Business by Robertson Davies, the first book of his Deptford Trilogy, for our next meeting, February 20th.
