Dear Book Club friends

In January we meet to discuss the book "Selection Day" (German title: Golden Boy) by Aravind Adiga, selected for us by Regine.

Important note for first-time attendees: if you decide to attend, the group expects you to have read the book and present your opinion.

Here a short description from
"Manjunath Kumar is fourteen and living in a slum in Mumbai. He knows he is good at cricket—if not as good as his older brother, Radha. He knows that he fears and resents his domineering and cricket-obsessed father, admires his brilliantly talented sibling, and is fascinated by curious scientific facts and the world of CSI. But there are many things, about himself and about the world, that he doesn’t know. [...]

Filled with unforgettable characters from across India’s social strata—the old scout everyone calls Tommy Sir; Anand Mehta, the big-dreaming investor; Sofia, a wealthy, beautiful girl and the boys’ biggest fan—Selection Day “brings a family, a city, and an entire country to scabrous and antic life”"

Please remember to cancel your attendance if you are unable to participate to leave your place to others. No-shows from past activities are tracked.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
