Fiction Bookgroup - Thursday 06 November, 2014 at 18:30
The Book Club meets the first Thursday of each month from 6:30pm. Each member of the book club can submit a wish list of four books that they wish the club to read.
From the individual wish lists we compile a longlist from which each month we will select a book for the club to read.
English tea and a lively discussion will be guaranteed.
If you would like to be included in the bookgroup please email the shop.
We also hold a number of critique groups at the bookshop, including a poetry and novel group. These critique groups are informal and an ideal place to have your on-going work evaluated by other members of the local community. Please email the bookshop should you require more information.
We are having a special evening with 5 poets reading. The poets are; Kate Foley, Robin Winckel-Mellish, Simon Brod, Sam Small and Music from Daniel Brouns. Books available for sale.
Please join us for a fun evening and a glass of wine.
Date: Saturday 15th November
Place: The English Bookshop, Lauriergracht 71, 1016 RH Amsterdam
