Joining a book club is fun – and if it’s all in Italian, even better!

There are many good reasons to join a book club: you discover new books that you might have overlooked; it gives you a reason to find time to read before the next meeting (even with a busy schedule); you can have respectful debates about something other than politics; you can read exciting fiction that deals with social issues; hearing other readers’ ideas might get you to re-think yours.

Teachers of Italian have also participated and one happy teacher said: “The hours attending Book Club Italiano help boost the required hours of continual professional development I need to complete annually.”
