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 March, World Book Club attendees will be discussing Israeli author Etgar Keret’s memoir The Seven Good Years. Set in the seven years between the birth of Keret’s son and the death of his father, this acclaimed sequence of autobiographical anecdotes blends comedy and tragedy, and covers such disparate topics as Israel’s mandatory conscription, Angry Birds, and his son’s insistence that he is a cat.
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 Seven Good Years can be purchased in paperback at The Writer’s Block Book Shop. Registration is not required.
