English Reading Group diskutiert über "Lullaby" von Leila Slimani

Mittwoch, 25. April 2018, 19.30 Uhr | Stadtbücherei am Haidplatz 8, Thon-Dittmer-Palais

The English Reading Group has been around for quite a few years now and is open to everyone who enjoys reading books in English and swapping ideas about them. We meet about once a month in the library to talk about titles chosen by the group. Recent choices range from "Jane Eyre" to Han Kang’s "The Vegetarian". Walk-ins welcome! There’s no need to sign up first - nor do you have to commit to every session.

Our book for the April meeting is "Lullaby" by Leila Slimani: 

"The baby is dead. It took only a few seconds. When Myriam, a French-Moroccan lawyer, decides to return to work after having children, she and her husband look for the perfect caretaker for their two young children. They never dreamed they would find Louise: a quiet, polite and devoted woman who sings to their children, cleans the family's chic apartment in Paris's upscale tenth arrondissement, stays late without complaint and is able to host enviable birthday parties. The couple and nanny become more dependent on each other. But as jealousy, resentment and suspicions increase, Myriam and Paul's idyllic tableau is shattered..." (Amazon)

Die English Reading Group ist ein zwangloses Treffen von Interessierten, die sich in englischer Konversation üben und über Literatur unterhalten möchten. Die Gespräche finden einmal im Monat in der Stadtbücherei am Haidplatz statt und drehen sich um ein englischsprachiges Buch, das die Teilnehmer vorher gemeinsam ausgewählt haben. Die gebürtige Britin und vhs-Dozentin Helen Stellner moderiert die Veranstaltung.

Veranstalter des Literaturkreises sind die Stadtbücherei und die Volkshochschule der Stadt Regensburg.

Eintritt € 7,- / ermäßigt € 5,- (inkl. 1 Getränk) - nur Abendkasse.
