My Bookstore X Lees een Boek's English Book Club #2

My Bookstore & online platform Lees een Boek decided to join forces and organize an English Book Club together. My Bookstore X Lees een Boek's English Book Club is a fun, engaging and inclusive monthly ritual focusing on diverse voices. Every month, we choose one book to read together as a community. Tag: #leeseenboek as you read along, and join us at one of our meetups!

For our second meetup, we will be discussing the Man Booker Prize winner of 2018: Milkman by Anna Burns. Milkman is a tale of gossip and hearsay, silence and deliberate deafness. It is the story of inaction with enormous consequences. Read more about the book.

Order Milkman here: http://bit.ly/milkmanannaburns. Or come by at our store to buy Milkman.

This event will be international in nature and will be held in English.
Admission options: order a copy at My Bookstore and show us your order number upon arrival on February 28th. In case you’ve got your copy of 'Milkman' at another bookshop you’ll need to buy a €7,50 ticket to attend this event.
