Please, join us at the Book Club!
We meet weekly. Each of us joins whenever we have the time for it. Joining and participating in the book club activities is free of charge. At the meetings each member is asked to talk about recent books that he or she has read, and possibly recommend some. The members that don't like to talk, but prefer to listen what others have to say about books they read, they can do just that, of course.
How does it work
There are no rules, just some guidelines that will be set on our first meetings. The moderator is very open to the ideas of the book club members regarding anything that concerns this group's purpose. The main point is to have fun with it, and share books and ideas with fellow book lovers.
If any of our members have written their own books, they are also welcome to share it with us in the book club.
As we progress, we will invite writers to present their books to us, and have a chance to meet them in person. It's always a thrill to find out the tricks of the trade, and hear the stories from the horse's mouth.
This website will serve as a platform where each member can be updated on our book club meetings and events. Each member can submit content for it to the moderator.
What kind of books
Since we all read books of our own choice, the language and origin of the books we discuss in our book club meetings are irrelevant. However, in order to avoid chaos and a group that is too diverse, the moderator has decided a flair of this reading group as follows:
- contemporary literature
- Genres fiction:
- Genres non-fiction:
film + television,
health + medicine,
history of ideas,
history of science,
philosophy of science,
- no discussion about books on politics, wars,
sex, or sport
If any members would like to discuss the books that are not under any of the above category, they are free to propose it to the group, which would then be taken into consideration.
Tea, coffee and cookies are available at the premises.
Member of the book club is not required to be the member of any affiliated associations. Members are encouraged to be on time, and turn off their cell phones if possible. The standard requirements of the venue apply.
After each session moderator will write a summary on this web page, so that the others, who have missed it, could have an insight on what went on. Any of the members are welcomed to contribute, post their reviews and comments here.
