Current International Reading Groups

How do I join a reading group?

Platypus reading groups are held in universities around the world. Though these are frequently connected to chapters on college campuses, association with a university or membership in the organization is not required for participation.

Additional information about reading groups in a particular city can be found on its respective chapter page. Many chapters also run regular supplementary activities such as Coffee Breaks; please see the respective chapter page for more information.

If you are interested in attending a group but do not see one listed in your area, please contact us at and we will respond as soon as possible.
