This is a group for anyone interested in literature from any part of the world. The discussions will preferably be in English, but we want to welcome your favourite texts, excerpts and poems in any language about a specific subject that will be the theme for a given session of our Book Club. The meetings are meant to be informal and we will usually gather in a public place, a café, or a bar.
"Sometimes you need to scorch everything to the ground, and start over. After the burning, the soil is richer, and new things can grow. People are like that, too. They start over. They find a way."
Little Fires Everywhere - Celest Ng
September is usually associated with new beginnings, a result of the end of Summer in the Northern hemisphere. It is a period when people are more prone to change habits, develop projects and act as if it really was a New Year (random fact: People in Ethiopia and Eritrea celebrate Enkutatash, the beginning of a new year).
How has this been depicted in literature? What books, characters or writers made you think about starting over, finding new ways?
Choose a book (or more than one) and join us on the last day of the Book Fair.
See you soon,
Marília and Bruno
