Rasprava is a social group for people who like to read, and discuss topics of importance in person.

While the emphasis is on books, we welcome events of any type, and you are free to create your own events, as well as communicate with any of the members.

Rasprava is a selective group, of relatively small size. We'd rather a small group of high quality than a large group of mediocre or low quality.

If you think Rasprava might be for you, please sign up.
