Thousand Lives Book Club

Book club poster (BLOG)In January 2014 I started the ‘Thousand Lives Book Club’ in Umag, Croatia as part of my EVS Project at the Local Democracy Agency in Brtonigla.

I started it with the intention of allowing people to use English in a different context, and to give them the motivation to read more, and more widely, in English.

It was also a way for me to meet a wider group of interesting and intelligent people.

The name was shameless stolen from a George RR Martin quote and whilst it is called a book club, understanding that most people are reading in a second language, we have two or three short stories to read for a fortnightly meeting, which still gives plenty to talk about.

Check back on this page to find links to my posts on our meetings, and about the stories we have read.
