English speakers and readers are welcome to join the Book of the Month Club. Hosted by Argentine writer and journalist Paula Varsavsky at ICANA. We will enjoy and discuss one book every month. Either a fiction or non-fiction book is chosen by the host, suggestions done by participants are taken into account.

When it comes to fiction the focus is on characters, suspense, point of view, defamiliarization, sense of time and place, surprise, the reader in the text and other literary matters. As far as non-fiction is concerned the focus is on: subject, historical context, political and economic context, narrator and writing skills.

We will get together every Thursday of the first week of the month (or the second week)at 6:00pm for a one and a half hour gathering.

At the first meeting of the Book of the Month we will be reading a short-story together.
