German Book Club

In our German Book Club we discuss contemporary German novels. The group is open to anyone who loves to read and discuss books in German. We especially welcome non-native speakers to take the opportunity to maintain and improve their German language skills. At least an intermediate level of German (B1/B2) is recommended.

The Book Club generally meets once a month - Tuesdays at 6:00pm - in the Goethe-Institut New York Library.

Participation is free with an RSVP, but participants must purchase the individual titles themselves. As there is no German bookstore in New York, we've put together some recommendations (PDF, 34 KB) where you can buy your books.
