EVENT: Goethe-Zentrum Book Club- June Meeting

It’s that time again! Once a month we hold a German book club meeting where members gather together to discuss a book they’ve been reading. This month’s meeting is on Sunday, so we thought we’d tell you guys all about it!



The book club is a chance for you to read a little German literature and have your say about it in a lively discussion. Lots of conversation takes place in both English and German and everybody seems to really enjoy it.

This weekend the group will be discussing “Leb Wohl, Berlin” by Christopher Isherwood. (English title, “Goodbye to Berlin.”) The novel is a semi autobiographical account of Isherwood’s time in 1930s Berlin, describing the pre-Nazi Germany and the people he met. The book, first published in 1939, highlights the groups of people who would be most at risk from Nazi intimidation. It was described by contemporary writer George Orwell as “Brilliant sketches of a society in decay.”
