Starting in 1995, between 10 and 30 people would show up to monthly meetings at a local library. At first they read two pages a month, eventually slowing to just one page per discussion. At that pace, the group – which now meets on Zoom – reached the final page in October. It took them 28 years.
And this November, they’re starting again: “The last sentence of the book ends midsentence and then it picks up at the front of the book. It’s cyclical. It never ends.”
