d Book Club

Since November 2020, LibrInsieme convenes every two weeks via Zoom, in the early evening, to discuss, comment on, and occasionally critique the books we've collectively chosen to read. We select contemporary writers of all genders, not necessarily widely recognised, and extend invitations for them to participate in our concluding session. Typically, they join with great enthusiasm, fostering enriching and stimulating exchanges as we delve into their work.
