World Bookclub: Travelling the World through Literature

British Columbia Book Clubs

The World Book Project is an invitation to travel the world through literature. As a group we select some of the best books from authors around the globe as a starting point for learning about new geographies.

Taking advantage of Vancouver's culinary diversity, our book club discussions take place in restaurants or cafes from the region we are 'visiting'. We meet every two months or so and in the company of friends, new foods, great wines and literature we have a good time.

We are always happy to receive new members to the Book Club, so if you are interested in joining us feel welcome. Our face-to-face discussions do have limited seating (8-10 people) to make sure we can all fit in a restaurant and there is a nice flow to the discussion. You are welcome to join the Club and then select which discussions you would like to attend.

For more information contact Juan Gabriel.
