A Short Introduction to the Books in Translation Book Club:

1. What book has been your group's favorite selection this past year?  Why? Our top reads were Two Gentlemen on  the Beach by Michael Kohlmeier and Exposed by Jean-Phillipe Blondel. A very close third would be Woman of the Ashes by Mia Couto.

2. How would you describe your book club to a prospective member?  In a society of increasing diversity, we are confronted with more and more that is unfamiliar.  The Books in Translation Book Club gives us an opportunity to experience new authors from foreign countries with the potential to gain insight into different cultures and to become more globally aware.
