Introduction to The Trollope Society (USA)
The Trollope Society’s American branch was founded by Albert H. Gordon in 1989 in New York in response to a growing community of American enthusiasts of Trollope. Its purpose, like its precursor in England, is to promote interest in — and awareness of — the work of Anthony Trollope.
In the U.S., The Trollope Society holds regular events in New York City, including Annual Dinners at the Knickerbocker Club on Fifth Avenue, Christmas parties (usually combined with a wine tasting), Annual Lectures in the Fall, occasional seminar series, and other events (see upcoming and past events).
There are some Reading Groups in different parts of America as well as online, and the Society is eager to foster them.
The Trollope Society is qualified as a public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions are deductible to the full extent permitted by law.
