In line with the times, the Silent Book Club moves online, from the comfort of your own home. Bring a book, connect with other book lovers, read, bring your own glass of wine and repeat.

How it works: Often with traditional book clubs there's the scramble to finish the assigned book, and the pressure to have something smart to say. Wouldn't it be great to have a book club where you could just enjoy books, friends, and wine—without any homework?

Silent Book Club Online is about connecting with other like-minded readers, learning about what other people are reading and taking the time to just read and connect from the comfort of our home.

To participate, please send an email to Munshya Nalomba, who will provide you with the log-in details:​
