The English reading group meets four times a year. It is is open to people who love reading and discussing works of fiction in English.
The basic idea is to read and discuss a book written in English, whether contemporary or classic fiction. The discussion is moderated - either someone volunteers or by round robin - and the decision for the next book to read is made by voting.
Meetings are held on Mondayevenings at 7.30 pm, with a discussion for around one and a half hours, with an apéro afterwards. Participants may be asked for a small contribution for the room rent: the estimate is around 10 CHF max, depending on numbers of people.
Please feel free to forward this information to your friends.
Next meeting cancelled: Ocean Vuong, On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous
November 2020 at 7.30pm: cancelled owing to the deteriorating covid-19 situation
Previous update:we have been able to rent a bigger room in Altstadthaus in order to make social distancing possible. We will meet downstairs from now on. Nevertheless, space is limited. Therefore we have decided to set up the following rules:
Number of participants is strictly limited to 11 persons max.
Enrolment will be handled on a "first come, first served“ basis once the invite email has been sent out. A waiting list is kept, in case someone cancels his or her participation.
Depending on the official rules, we may have to wear masks at the meeting.
You have to provide your contact details (name and telephone/mobile number) at the meeting. We will destroy the list after 25 days.
You are kindly asked to contact us in the case of your infection with COVID-19 so that we can inform all participants accordingly. We will send the information to your email-address and will also try to get in touch with you by phone.
Having said that, it goes without saying that events may not take place if the situation in Switzerland changes.
