Live in Seattle? Always wanted to read more Arabic lit (and meet interesting people, for goodness sakes)? Well, then:

Interested in joining an informal book group in Seattle focused on reading contemporary Arabic literature in translation? If you’ve been waiting for a chance to catch up on your Sonallah or get acquainted with Elias Khoury (or just to find out who these writers are), this is it! I’m thinking monthly meetings wherever is convenient for everyone.

Please contact Yasmin at arablit.seattle AT gmail DOT com.

If you’re not in Seattle, then consider putting out your own book-club call. If you need help starting a book club, well, we’ve got advice from someone who’s been running one for more than a decade.
