Book Club!

The Book Club is an opportunity to read and participate in a lively discussion of books written in English about the history and culture of Spanish language countries. Members suggest books, and the selections are made in April for the subsequent Fall and Spring.

Each person who nominates a title is the host, the reviewer, and author of discussion questions posted on the Book Club website.

The Book Club meets the third Wednesday of the month from October to April, excluding December, in person or Zoom. All Spanish Club members are welcome to attend. Contact the host so the host can plan on the expected attendance.

For questions about the Book Club, contact Jo Keitges, Paul Voorhees, or Judith Buys at, subject heading Book Club.
