The Dialogue Society Book Group explores the capacity of books to provide windows into different cultural and intercultural worlds. We will be choosing a series of quality novels to read and then to discuss together at relaxed, sociable gatherings at the Dialogue Society. Participants are welcome to suggest books for future sessions.
Participants will need to find a copy of the book chosen for each meeting and will need to read it prior to the meeting.
We will have a conversation about the book and our responses to it. Discussion may cover:
the quality of the storytelling
the authenticity and accuracy with which a historical/cultural situation is portrayed
our personal responses to it
You do not need to be an expert on literature or anything else to join in. The group should be enjoyable for anyone who enjoys a good book and likes discovering new ones.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, at the Dialogue Society, we are turning our events into an online format. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that The Dialogue Society Book Group will also be moved onto the online platform Zoom.
