April Book Discussion: The Tin Drum by Günter Grass

**MOVED TO SUNDAY, 29 APRIL, to avoid coinciding with the Bersih 3.0 Rally**

Join us in sipping tea and discussing the book of the month - The Tin Drum by Günter Grass.

 

"Today I know that everything watches, that nothing goes unseen, and that even wallpaper has a better memory than ours. It isn't God in His Heaven that sees all. A kitchen chair, a coat-hanger, a half-filled ash tray, or the wooden replica of a woman named Niobe, can perfectly well serve as an unforgetting witness to every one of our acts."

 

 *Note: For ease of planning, our meetups will (almost) always be scheduled for the last Saturday of the month @ 3pm*

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
