UIC Morning Book Club

The UIC Book Club event this morning, Thursday 2 November, is subsequent to the great interest in forming a morning club. Participants from the first meeting have decided on a book to read (and discuss) at the meeting, and whoever wants to join – please come, you are all more than welcome to participate.

One of the participants, Joy Dias, wrote the following: "Thank you to all of those who attended the initial meeting for the UIC Book Club. It was a great success and the turnout was excellent. It was decided that we would meet once a month, probably the first Thursday of every month, in a café. The next meeting will be held on Thursday, November 2nd at 10am in the 70’s era cafe called Stuen th. on Tordenskjoldsgade 19B, 8200 Aarhus N. We will be discussing the book entitled “1984" by George Orwell. You may be able to find it in a library, borrow it from a friend, purchase a hard copy online, or buy it through your Kindle device if you like. We look forward to seeing you and joining in the discussion! There’s always room for more to participate!”

UIC Book Club Set-up

All who are enjoying reading books as a pastime are more than welcome to join for a cosy time among other bookworms. Autumn comes with colder weather and long evenings, and for many of us, this is the time of the year where books become increasingly irresistible.

Reading books can be a fantastic exsperience, and maybe some enjoy to discuss some of the readings or have suggestions for readings. Books can be a source of enrichment, amusement, and entertainment. Book clubs have often led to friendships, and therefore this initiative is to see whether there is enough interest to form the basis for a UIC Book Club in English.

The first meeting for the UIC Book Club in English was held about two weeks ago; it was a fine meet-up and discussion around the set-up of the book club, where all are most welcome to get together for a "hyggelig" (cosy) time reading books. 

The Participants agreed on getting the book club started, where to meet for the reading, and which book some would like to read and discuss for the next UIC Book Club meeting on 2 November.

More UIC Book Clubs?

The UIC is prepared to host more than just one book club. If possible, the book club is to be organised beyond working hours. Also, if there is a need for a book club for younger readers (age 16-20), it would be possible to organise it if enough people are interested.

All book club details depend on those interested. This includes some to volunteer, and some to become the book club coordinator (coordinating time and place for the upcoming book club meetings).
