The Embassy of Brazil, with the aim of promoting Brazilian literature in London, launched a Book Club back in January 2015. The club, for those who love reading, is open to all at no cost, be them Brazilian or foreign. Due to its success the project is continuing this year. As a bilingual club, participants can read in whichever language they prefer, however the subsequent discussions will be held in English. More information about the schedule this year is available on the Consulate website.
The schedule for the coming months:
21st April: Vidas Secas (1938) (Dry Lives) – Graciliano Ramos
19th May: As Religiões no Rio (1904) (The Religions in Rio) – João do Rio
16th June: O Ateneu (1888) (The Athenaeum) – Raul Pompeia
