THE PROLOGUE SOCIETY is a book club and not-for-profit organization in South Florida whose purpose is to encourage and foster interest in and understanding of the history and culture of all peoples and nations. Our motto is borrowed from Shakespeare's phrase from The Tempest: "What's past is prologue."
The Society, founded in 1992, hosts seven author-luncheon events each season from October to April, with occasional special events in September and May.
Members meet to listen to writers and historians of local, national, and international stature discuss their recent books. Each season brings a wide variety of topics that span time, geography, cultures and disciplines.
Luncheons are held at Temple Israel of Greater Miami.
