Mailing List? More questions?
If you'd like more information about the group, or would like to be added to the group's mailing list and kept informed about future meetings, please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
The reading group has been running now for over three years.
Do I have to talk?
No, not if you don't want to, though obviously you'll get more from the meetings if you do.
After every meeting, the group always gathers for a drink at a bar somewhere to continue to chat. Attending the meetings is a great way of making friends in Prague, especially if you haven't been in the city long.
