book club


We need more books and more readers. As the moderator and organiser,
Purva Grover, hosts community events to bring book lovers together.

Monthly book club meetings for the readers in the UAE, and beyond. From on-site to virtual, the events reach out to 2100+ members of the Meetup Written Word Society. 

Whenever you read a good book, you want to spend every waking moment wanting to talk about that book. The trouble is, most of the people around you are not reading the same book, at least not at the same time, and they have no interest in hearing all your feelings! That's where book clubs come in. Let's keep reading, talk about what we are reading, and make friends with other readers.
