Book Clubs, Tertulias Literarias

Hi All!

As you know I coordinate various Book Clubs in English and occasional literary meetings in Spanish. Below you have the current events. If you have any questions, comment below :) I'm posting them in alphabetical order, to be fair, as I love all our meetings just the same ;)

¡Hola a tod@s!
Como sabéis coordino varios Clubes de Lectura en inglés y de vez en cuando algunas tertulias literarias en castellano. Debajo podéis ver el calendario de los eventos actuales. Si tenéis algunas preguntas, no dudéis en comentarmelas. Los pongo en orden alfabético, para ser justa, porque quiero a todas esas reuniones de la misma manera ;)

2022/23 Meetings

Inscripciones a partir del 12.09.2022


  1. Hola Slawka. Podrías publicar los títulos que vas a comentar en la tertulia en inglés? Vas a cambiar la fecha a los martes?
    Saludos cordiales

    1. ¡Hola Joaquin! Este finde todos los títulos y fechas estarán publicados. Por ahora están disponibles los de enero. Donostia Book Club seguirá los lunes, la semana que viene es una excepción. Saludos :)

  2. For those who get lost with the multitude of characters in the book "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall" can download this scheme with the houses and characters (according to Wikipedia)

    1. Thank you, Carlos! If you don't mind I'll share the link by the email too!

  3. Hi Slawka!

    I'm Maria Barral, English teacher in secondary school.
    I'm writing because I just saw that the next Book Club that will take place in Donosti will deal with Sally Rooney's novel Normal People, and I was wondering if my teenage students would be able to attend.

    I've never been to any club of yours, and, besides, my students have never done anything similar. However, I think they would love it, since apart from being passionate about literature (so am I), they're extremely keen on Rooney's work.

    The thing is I don't know if it could be done, if it's ok with the organization, and, of course, if those meetings would be suitable for them, 16-18 year-old teenagers with English as a foreign language.

    I would really appreciate your response, and I would also love to contact you in a more private way, if you would be so kind.

    Thanks a lot in advance.
    Best regards,


    1. Hi Maria,

      Thank you for your message! Of course they can come! I believe that if they can read the book and enjoy it there is absolutely no reason for them not to participate.

      I love seeing young people reading and at the next meeting I will also present a new initiative directed especially to them: LUMAfest!.

      I really hope to meet them in January and if you would like to talk in a more private way my email is donostiabookclub @ gmail . com


  4. Thanks Slawka for advising us on this fantastic book. For those who want to read a synopsis, I leave this link

    Contains a quick summary and another by chapters

    There is also an excellent television series with 12 chapters, available on Rakuten and Starz

    Happy new year to all!
