Spouse and Partner Book Club 

Are you a book lover? Do you want to learn some deep insights from friends all over the world? Do you enjoy sharing your opinions?  If yes, then join us. 

Our books are carefully chosen by our leaders to allow for an accessible level of English, of inter-cultural understanding and wholesome discussion. Each week, our leaders create questions for a guided discussion. Our discussions have allowed a multiplicity of viewpoints from which we all learn about each other's cultures. We have found that the atmosphere of compassionate understanding permits an honest and authentic exchange.  

The Spouse and Partner Book Club meets virtually every week during the academic year on Fridays at 8:30 A.M. ET beginning on September 10, 2021
