Anthony Trollope Society Facebook Group reaches 900 members

Actually it’s already 901 members but that’s because it’s growing too fast for the headlines to keep up.

The group is very active, discussing all things pertaining to Trollope though if the link is sometimes tenuous or tangential no-one cares if it is an interesting discussion.

Online shared readings are a big part of the activities of the group.  The latest was a reading of Miss Mackenzie which finished just this week. The participants take turns to “lead” the discussions providing a precis of two or three chapters and stimulating discussion with questions or views on what they have just read. Members are welcome to come along for the read or to join the conversation and air their views.

Members also share any Trollope sightings – references to Trollope that they encounter in everyday life – be it other books they are reading, magazines or online articles.

The group is very friendly – in fact, I would say it is one of the friendliest places on Facebook – not that this inhibits the discussions – disagreement and debate is encouraged, but everyone respects others’ views and opinions – shouting down just doesn’t happen. The latest discussion is on the pronunciation of the name “Proudie” (with a surprise suggestion that it might rhyme with “prude” and be one of those Victorian type names that give a clue to the character).

If you are even remotely interested in Trollope (and why would you be here if you weren’t at least a little bit) then why not give it a try:
