If you like reading and would like to improve your English, this is the place for you. At Escola Bloom we have an ongoing English Book Club where we read and discuss titles in English every two weeks.
A monthly book club for avid readers to discover new favourites and improve their English discussing them.
We will read a range of titles, from recent publications to modern classics. The focus is mostly on books originally published in English; however, we will include some titles in translation that are being read and talked about in the English-speaking world. For those who prefer reading in Catalan or Spanish and discussing in English, all have been translated to Spanish, and Milkman and H is for Hawk are also in Catalan.
24th of February: Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead, OlgaTockarczuk (also available in Spanish as Sobre los huesos de los Muertos)
24th of March: The French Lieutenant’s Woman, John Fowles
28th of April: The Buried Giant, Kazuo Ishiguro
26th of May: Milkman, Anna Burns
30th of June: H is for Hawk, Helen Macdonald
28th of July: Winter in Sokcho, Elisa Shua Dusapin
Don’t worry if your English isn’t perfect, we are here to discuss books, not to punish you for your grammar!
