If you love reading, live in (or around) Nice, and are interested in discussing great books in English, then welcome to Riviera Readers!
We meet once a month, generally on the third Monday, to discuss our selection.
Only members attending an actual meeting may put forward title suggestions. You are also encouraged to lead the discussion for your favorite book. The title is posted online about two months in advance, allowing plenty of time for amazon shipping, to pick up a copy on your weekend trip to Paris or the UK or to place an order through FNAC or your favorite local book store.
Meetings are held in the evenings in a private room with a fireplace, coffee table, comfortable leather couches and stuffed chairs at the elegant 4-star Hotel Ellington, 25 boulevard Dubouchage. Members should plan to purchase a glass of wine, tea, juice or other beverage at the bar since the Hotel Ellington courteously allows us use of the room at no charge. In the summer, look for us out on the Terrace!
In the future, Riviera Readers would like to expand its range and schedule separate meetups for visiting authors, local literary events such as book fairs, signings, poetry readings and more. If you have published a book and live here or will be visiting the Riviera, please contact Organizer Ann Sumwalt and let's make it happen!
Members are also free to schedule meetups for special events. Once your meetup has three attendees, or the approval of an organizer, it becomes active and visible here on the Riviera Readers site.
