A book club dedicated to world literature
From Peru to China, Nigeria to Hungary, some of the world’s greatest writers are at work overseas. In this bi-monthly book club, readers will explore these literary talents from around the world, discussing their books and the places they come from.
In May, World Book Club attendees will be discussing French author Maylis de Kerangal’s novel The Heart. Set in the 24 hours following a fatal car accident, this gorgeously written novel explores themes of death, identity, and the power of decisions, as they relate to the book's central event: the transplant of a heart.
An hour-long discussion will be accompanied by light snacks and refreshments. Attendees are expected to have read the book in advance. Copies of The Heart can be purchased in paperback at The Writer’s Block Book Shop. Registration is not required.
