Books Beyond Borders (International Book Club)

Books Beyond Borders (International Book Club)

Curious about international literature, a seasoned traveler, or an intermediate ESL student looking to build skills? All are welcome to join I-House’s International Book Club, Books Beyond Borders, to partake in cultural exchange through monthly book discussions and events.

Meetings are usually held every 3rd Sunday of the month at I-House’s Hagan Room unless otherwise specified. Please enter through the side door by the parking lot.

We meet for two sessions for each book. The first session is a discussion of the text. The second session incorporates the larger cultural context of the book. This can mean looking at other materials such as poetry, short films, visual art, etc.
