Welcome to the new English-speaking book discussion club.

A new book club, hosted by Arkadia bookstore, aims to gather people who share interest in reading, and would like to gather with fellow-book-lovers for the purpose of joyful and pleasant conversations. For every meeting, that will take place once a month, on Saturday afternoon, we will hold a discussion on a selected book. However, there will be no strict focus on a plot of the book, but rather on the topics, discussed in the book. This way, everyone interested can join the conversation, and to have inspiring discussions on what one considers to be relevant and important.

The head of the club is Viktorija Aizkalna, with the background in Linguistics and Philosophy, currently studies in Finland to get her MA in Educational Leadership: “Ever since I finished reading my first book, I was hooked on reading. Am lucky to choose a professional field that demands lots of reading. However, it is good to switch from professional literature, and to read a high-quality fiction and non-fiction. Even better, if there are people to have a fruitful discussion on the subject. This lead me to the idea of setting a book discussion club. The goal is to have lively discussions and inspiring conversations about literature, art and life, and, of course, to make new friends.”
