Book Club

Each month, we choose a new book written by a European author or taking place in Europe.

We've read books about real people who have moved to France and write about the challenges of integrating oneself into a totally different culture, historical fiction books (think WWII-era Europe), and lighter (but still entertaining) fiction that takes place in Italy or England.

Some of our readers travel frequently to Europe and some are armchair travelers, but we hope that our book club will be an entertaining trip to your favorite cities, a place to engage in lively discussions, and perhaps make some new friends!  

If you can't make the meetings in person, that's okay! You can still follow along and read with us as we travel to new places together. We hope you enjoy the journey!
