About philosophy discussion groups
There are philosophy reading and discussion groups all over the world, and each one is a little different. Below are some links to history and variations on the concept.
Great books reading groups
  Although the Philosophy Café in Rochester is not specifically a “great books” group, it does follow a similar idea.
    “Book discussion clubs” (Wikipedia)
    Philosophy Café – Houston
    Great Books Foundation
Café philosophique
  The rise of philosophy cafés in Europe and elsewhere may have originated with the “café philosophique” movement in Paris.
    “Café philosophique” (Wikipedia)

    “What are Philosophy Cafés?” (PDF) (Philosophy Café – Kingston, UK)
