36th Meeting!
THIS MEETUP IS AT STARBUCKS! Hello everyone! For our next reading we've selected the short story A Telephone Call by Dorothy Parker (https://americanliterature.com/author/dorothy-parker/short-story/a-telephone-call). Also, for whoever is interested, here's a bit about the author: https://americanliterature.com/author/dorothy-parker :) We would like to encourage anyone that was interested in our last meetings but couldn't attend to come, and to bring a suggestion of a short story or author for our next reading! Good readings and hope to see you all next time!

    O que fazemos

    This is a group for people interested in participating in a Book Club. Everyone is welcome, although the group was primarily designed for people with an advanced english level in order for the discussions to be more fluid. We would like to state that although we speak English at our meetings, we aren't really a group for those who look for an English classroom kind of setting. The club will work as follows: Monthly meetings where we discuss a short story for which the only required preparation is to have read the story! We start by giving a brief overview of the plot in order to refresh everyone's memory about the text and then we open to discussion.

    Here is a list of all the short stories we've read for the Book Club meetings (from most recent to oldest) with the link for the online version of the story:
