A study group for those with intermediate Latin who want to read texts together. 

Join our Latin Reading Group to explore different Latin texts - ranging from poetry to prose, from classical to insular, and from the serious to the light-hearted. Texts will be circulated in advance, and attendees are encouraged to prepare before the evening. Help with grammar, vocabulary, and context will be provided.
