You're interested in exploring new worlds through interesting books? Come along to one of our book clubs and join in a discussion.
Our book clubs focus on exploring the work of acclaimed German-language authors. They are free of charge, and take place in the bright and comfortable rooms of the Goethe-Institut London Library.
The book clubs meet once a month to informally explore the ideas contained in the best works of German fiction. The discussion usually lasts for 90 minutes. Language learners are welcome. Participants either buy the title themselves, or borrow them from our Library.
