Each week we will hear about different members of the Algonquin Round Table, which began meeting in June 1919 at the Hotel Algonquin. There is a list of members here. You will find out about them, hear stories they wrote or worked on, and have a fun time as we take a deep dive into New York City history. You can participate in the live chat, ask questions, and engage with others if you wish. All events are pet friendly.
Each week you can get clues about who we will be hearing about via Instagram on the Dorothy Parker Society Instagram account here.
April is also National Poetry Month, so we will talk a lot about the poets and writers of the group. If you have any questions, contact us or post it on Facebook or Instagram.
