Book club

Please note our discussions are currently taking place via Zoom.

We are a friendly group of school parents who meet every 4-6 weeks 10:30-11:15h in the upper hall to discuss our book of the month. Any member of the group is welcome to suggest the next book which can be older or newer, fact or fiction, but needs to be a German-language text. The discussion will also be held in German. Our next book is:

We look forward to discussing Aberland by Gertraud Klemm in July 2020.

There's no need for a degree in literature (although that's okay too), but if you love reading and sharing your ideas, you've come to the right place.

Please contact buchclubdssislington@gmail.com if you have any questions.
