Register for the Phineas Redux Reading Group

phineasfinnThe Trollope Society (USA) will host a reading group of Anthony Trollope’s Phineas Redux, the sequel to Phineas Finn and part of Trollope’s Palliser novels. Phineas Finn has been lauded as simply the best “political” novel of the 19th Century, and Phineas Redux continues the tale of the Irish politician in London.  Led by N. John “Jack” Hall, the group will meet on the second Tuesdays of February and March, 2018, and attendees should read the first 40 chapters for the first meeting. The Oxford University Press World’s Classics edition of the book is preferred.

Advance registration (below) is required in order for your name to appear on the registration list at the entrance to the building. Please have ID ready to show the security guards when you enter.

There is no charge to participate.
