JC Spanish-Language Book Group

05/22/2015 - 7:00pm

The Spanish Book Club meets once a month to discuss contemporary fiction and non-fiction. We read in Spanish and discuss in Spanish. We select titles by already established authors, as well as fresh, brand new writing from Latin America and Spain. Our aim is to create an open, laid-back space where the very private act of reading becomes a group activity. Everybody is welcome to attend, from native Spanish-speakers to learners interested in advanced reading and conversation practice.
