The Literary Society continues the tradition of African-American literary societies formed in the 1880's to encourage reading and education in African-American communities. Founded in Harlem in 1982, The Literary Society, a book discussion group of 50 members, meets monthly to discuss books reflecting the political and artistic experience by authors of African descent. The public is invited to join The Literary Society at the Schomburg Center for a discussion of The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis.
