All are welcome to the DFNY monthly meetings. During the pandemic our meetings were held on Zoom, and for the safety and well-being of everyone, as well as the group's preference, we will remain on Zoom until further notice.

DFNY meetings are now being held via Zoom from 1-4PM. For instructions on how to connect to our Zoom meetings contact

We Invite You to Read and Discuss Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens. (An additional recommendation for reading at this time is American Notes by Charles Dickens.)

The format of our Zoom and In-person meetings is as follows:

The meeting begins promptly at 1PM with a welcoming and a few announcements. The meeting is then turned over to Mark Halperin,

our Honorable Vice-President and Discussion Moderator. Each chapter scheduled for a particular meeting is then presented by a different member of the Fellowship followed by questions for discussion. Members volunteer to give their excellent presentations and the DFNY is most grateful for their professionalism and willingness. There is a 10 minute comfort break midway through the presentations. Upon conclusion of the discussion, the meeting is  closed.
