sorry everyone, but the reading group has closed down for now, as Jan has moved back from Berlin to London.
Please see attached feedback for Americanah by Chimamada Ngozi Adichie.
My next recommendation is The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier
I am hoping to come back to Berlin in January or February but I’m moving to London permanently this weekend. When I know in more detail, I’ll email everyone with news of my next visit.
I’ve been organising these groups for ten years and have enjoyed every discussion. A big thank you to everyone who has been part of the groups. I’m going to miss you all. Fingers crossed that I can find a way to continue, but I will only be able to come intermittently, not on a regular basis..
In the meantime, all the very best for the festive season.
Please see the feedback for our discussions on Red Joan by Jennie Rooney.
Our next choice is Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie- Winner of the USA National Book Critics Award
Thur 30 Oct at 18.15 at Buchkantine, Dortmunderstr
Mon 3 Nov at 19.30 at my flat; Wed 5th Nov at 18.15 at the Ingeborg Derwitz Library, Schloss Centre, Steglitz; Fri 7th Nov at 10.30 am at the library
I am still sorting out the problems following the unfortunate flood in our flat, I’m 90% certain that I can honour these dates but if I have to change them I will let you know by email.
Looking forward to more great discussions. Americanah is a longer novel than we usually read, but it’s well worth the effort!
There are no groups in August.
