Each term (Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer) Deutsches Haus offers the Kathrin Jonas Buchclub for intermediate to advanced students who are interested in reading and discussing contemporary German literature. The book club meets on select Fridays between 6:30 pm and 8:00pm. It is open to people who can speak and read German with some proficiency, but is not restricted to fluent speakers. Newcomers are welcome and the book club is open to non-students as well. Membership costs $55 per semester.
This summer the Book Club will be reading Vielleicht Esther, by Katja Petrowskaja. The soft cover edition from Suhrkamp Taschenbuch Verlag (ISBN: 978-3-518-46596-7) can be ordered from IBIS and will cost $13.00 + shipping charges.
