For the month of November, we will be reading 'Submission' by Michel Houellebecq, a fascinating book about a theme very much in the spotlight of today's society and current developments :

Submission is a novel by French writer Michel Houellebecq.

The book instantly became a bestseller in France, Germany and Italy

The novel, a political satire, imagines a situation in which a Muslim party upholding traditionalist and patriarchal values is able to win the Protected content election in France with the support of the Socialist Party. The book drew an unusual amount of attention because, by a macabre coincidence, it was released on the day of the Charlie Hebdo shooting.

The book is quite thin, but even if you would not have been able to finish the book on time, do join us for an undoubtedly interesting discussion around this theme !

Looking forward to seeing you all again,
