(VERSIÓN EN ESPAÑOL ABAJO)
We at AnGlophone are reading lovers and decided a while ago to create our very own Book Club. Once a month, we get together to talk about a book while having some coffee and pastries. Obviously, meetings are in English!
This club is free and open to any of you craving good reads and a nice chat. If you are interested in joining just come to any of the meeting dates below. You just have to get the book, read it before the meeting and join us! The meetings take place on the first Friday of every month (see dates below) at AnGlophone Downtown (Mendez Núñez, 20) at 5 pm.
En AnGlophone somos amantes de la lectura y por eso creamos hace tiempo nuestro Book Club. Una vez al mes, nos reunimos para hablar del libro propuesto con un café y unas galletas. Obviamente ¡las reuniones son siempre en inglés!
Este club del libro es gratuito y abierto a todos los que tengáis ganas de una buena lectura, abajo incluimos las lecturas de este año y las fechas para que os vengáis a todas las reuniones que queráis. Solo tienes que conseguir el libro, leerlo antes de las reunión y sumarte.
Las reuniones tienen lugar el primer viernes de cada mes (puedes ver las fechas abajo) en AnGlophone Downtown (Mendez Núñez, 20) a las 5 de la tarde.
