International Fiction Reading Group
Join our award winning International Fiction reading group, run in partnership with the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library.
The initiative aims to encourage more people to read foreign literature, and is the first book group of its kind in the UK. The group usually meets on the second Wednesday of each month from 1.30pm to 2.30pm in the training room on the 2nd floor of the Millennium Library in Norwich.
The next meeting will take place on Wednesday 15 May when the group will be discussing Traveller of the Century by Andres Neuman (translated from Spanish by Nick Caistor and Lorenzo Garcia) and The Detour by Gerbrand Bakker (translated from Dutch by David Colmer) Both books are shortlisted for this year’s Independent Foreign Fiction Prize
