グループ概要

This group is for people in the Tokyo area who love reading and talking but don’t have the opportunity to have in-depth discussions about books in English.

Basically we will have casual meetings at a Tokyo area cafe with discussion and friendly debate about books’ themes or just your feelings about the book for 1-2 hours. Hopefully you can make friends with some like-minded people too!

We’re planning to meet once every month or 2 months. We will give you at least one month notice of which book we will be reading for each meetup. Feel free to join each event or not depending on your level of interest in the book for that month.

Location: usually a cafe in the Tokyo area, Sumida-Ku, Taito-Ku, or Jimbocho area.
Price: 300円 (for Meetup account fee)
Group size: we’ll start with a maximum of 8 people at first, but we might expand the size later.

PS:Japanese people/non-native English speakers are welcome, but please understand that we may be reading and discussing about some complex and advanced topics in English, so please make sure your English reading and conversation skills are high enough.

1st Book Club Meetup! “Pachinko” by Min Jin Lee

Good morning cafe(神保町店)

Hello everyone and thank you for joining the first meetup, and thank you for your feedback! For the first meetup we’ll be reading “Pachinko” by Min Jin Lee It’s available on Amazon and probably many other outlets. If this book doesn’t interest you, no hard feelings, feel free to come another time! Please read as much of the book as you have time to finish. There’s no pressure to finish it, but please let us know on the day if you haven’t so you can avoid spoilers. The meetup itself will be fairly unstructured. I’m sure the amount of things to discuss will vary depending on the book. In general we’ll talk about the book and surrounding themes, or just anything about it or related to it that is interesting to you. We’ll dedicate some time at the end to talk about the plans for the next meetup, but apart from that, I’m hoping it will be a very lightly moderated, free discussion. See you there! The only rules are: -be willing to participate -don’t be rude -silliness is welcomed (book clubs are really boring if everyone is serious) Price: 300円 (for site membership fee) Guests are welcome, but please tell me in advance. PS: the location has a small chance of changing, depending on availability.
