After Dinner Book Club
We meet every second Tuesday of the month at 7:30pm at a book club member’s home. We enjoy books from all genres and have lively and engaging conversations. We hope you come and join us for an after-dinner drink at the after-dinner book club. If you are interested, please contact us.
Janet Valverde-Beck (Co-chair)
The after-work group caters for those who have day jobs and are looking to participate in a wide range of after-work activities. Activities that we have organised in the past include chocolate making, guided city walks, taking a tour of the opera house, a visit to the wine boats, seeing a light show and going to the theatre or an art gallery, amongst others. These activities are often followed by a meal or drinks.
The structure of the group is driven by specific events, which all group members can suggest ideas for rather than scheduled monthly meetings. This flexibility allows members to attend events according to their own work schedule and personal interest. Events usually start between 17.00 and 19.00. If you would like to get to know us, please contact one of the following chairpersons:
Olivia Hall (Chairperson)
English Book Club Goldcoast
Our members take turns to choose books and host meetings, on the Gold Coast (east side of Lake Zürich), usually on the first Wednesday evening of the month. Our discussions are lively and entertaining and are accompanied by drinks and light food.
Janice Joutsikoski (Co-chair)
Georgina Malone (Co-chair)
Saturday Wine and Dine
For those of you who are new to this group, we organize dinners at a restaurant on Saturday evenings where partners are also welcome to join. So come join us for good food and good company. We plan on organizing an event every 4 to 6 weeks.

Moviegoers in the evening
Once a month we go to the cinema in the evening. The films we watch are shown in the original language (with German and French subtitles). Afterwards we go for a meal or a drink, but you’re not obliged to stay on if you don't have the time!
Chip Efthymiades (Chairperson)
We love to get together at special events to celebrate our friendships. We have our annual “Kickoff” to get the ZIWA year started, a winter holiday celebration, an event to celebrate a country or region and so much more. Our events take place during the day and evening too. All information will be available on the website.
