English Book Club

ALORA Book Club

September 2018 - June 2019 - Please find below the booklist for 2017-2018. The theme for next season's reading is “Books from which movies have been made”.

The book club meets generally on the second Tuesday of every month, with some exceptions.
The meetings start at 19h15.  
It usually is a 2 to 2.5 hour friendly gathering and everyone is welcome, even if they have not completely read the book. 
A volunteer hosts the meeting and provides some snacks or drinks, which are supplemented by what the readers bring as well. (Please bring bottle of wine or snack to help your host!)

You also do not have to come to every meeting, only when you wish to.
We have native English speakers, but also many others, so the club is not just for English speakers.
You will receive information of the venue a few days before the book club date.

To register your interest, please contact Mieke Reece.
