One evening each month we choose two books from the shelves and read 
them aloud.

It usually takes a couple of hours, more or less. Sometimes we decide in 
advance what we'll read, other times not.

We invite you to drop in and listen for a while on your way to or fro. 
The structure is informal; we take turns reading as it feels 
comfortable. You could think of it as a live audiobook.

We also hope that you might like to participate in the future: we’re 
always interested in additional readers, and ideas about what we might read.

 >> impromptu comes from the French, meaning “extemporaneous, spur of 
the moment”
 >> but the Latin /in promptu/ from which it derives also meant “in 
readiness” or “at hand”
