The first Europa Book Club is here!
In May 2020, Europa Editions launched its first virtual book club. Each month, we will be reading a different Europa title—from new releases, to classics, to hidden gems. Read with us as we explore together the best of international literature!
You can read at your own pace, or follow our suggested reading schedule. Check-in with us as you read, sending any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org, or using the hashtag #EuropaBookClub on social media!
At the end of month, join us for a virtual discussion of the book with authors, translators, booksellers, and special guests.
Our first selection is Breasts and Eggs by Mieko Kawakami, translated by Sam Bett and David Boyd. Join us as we plunge into this breathtaking story and navigate Kawakami’s lyrical prose of gender expectations, femininity, and the experience of being a woman in the modern world.
