Jakarta Book Club ( is a monthly book club started in 2010.

We want to continue with our meetup despite the short month filled with long holidays and busyness of festive preparations. We will have our book club in the fourth week of July, fully aware that some of you might have just arrived back in town.

This month's theme is very exciting! We'll be talking about music and cultures – a way to admit that we all have been influenced by them throughout our entire lives. As Billy Joel put it, "I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music."

Expect to hear review on books like "Morrissey: Autobiography" written by the-one-and-only Morrissey, "Telegraph Avenue" written by Michael Chabon, "The History of Jazz" written by Ted Gioia, "The Untold Stories of Broadway" written by Jennifer Ashley Tepper, "Check the Technique" by Brian Coleman,and more (to be updated).

Feel free to suggest us book(s) related to this subject.

Agenda of event:

• book reviews & discussion
• book swap
• games, late-lunch chat (BYO)

PS. There will be book swapping at the end of the event, so bring your old book(s) and expect to bring home a "new" one!

Let's read more books, share and swap them with other book lovers. Feel free to invite more people. Feel free to bring snacks and drinks. Feel free to dress casually. We want to welcome you.

This event will be conducted in Bahasa Indonesia and English. This FREE event is kindly supported by GEPI ( and (
