Something to chew on:

We would appreciate if you can take care of your RSVP's and manage them actively. There will be enough info in the meetup details to know what to expect. To RSVP Yes for a meetup and not attend the event will result in a no-show next to your name. We use this to see which members are dependable when it comes to booking venues. Those who manage their profiles will get preference.

HYBRID (Online & In Person) Johannesburg Silent Book Club

Needs a location

Silent Book Club is now a Hybrid online and in person meet event. For online, a new Zoom link will be sent every Wednesday to attendees. The in person meeting will be held at Goethe Institute, Johannesburg.
Bring a book, connect with other book lovers, read, bring your own glass of wine and repeat.

How it works: Often with traditional book clubs there's the scramble to finish the assigned book, and the pressure to have something smart to say. Wouldn't it be great to have a book club where you could just enjoy books, friends, and wine—without any homework?

Silent Book club is about connecting with other like-minded readers, learning about what other people are reading and taking time to just read and connect from the comfort of our home.

Silent Book Club is an international organization and this is the Johannesburg chapter. Learn more at the Silent Book Club website: https://silentbook.club/
