Maria Alejandra Serantes (Chairperson)
Virtual Book Club
As the title suggest, this is a virtual book group. The idea behind this group is twofold; COVID restrictions made us house bound and in “normal” times we are connected to a book club when travelling and being in different time zones. If you would like to be part of this group and on the email list, please contact me. I will use ZIWA Facebook to promote the next book on the reading list, and you can join in as much or as little as you want. We currently meet via Zoom.
Meeting: 1 x monthly
Liz Davies (Chairperson)
World Literature Book Group
Our book club focuses primarily on the works of Asian and Middle Eastern authors, read in English translation. We read widely across genres, from fiction, both classical and contemporary, to non-fiction, essays, poetry. We are an eclectic group, holding lively, wide-ranging discussions on the last Friday afternoon of the month in a central Zürich café.
