English Alive began its English Book Club Bregenz in January 2011. Since then our group has met on the first Wednesday of each month from September thru June. Each member chooses a book for a given month and is responsible for the introduction of the author, poses questions, moderates the ensuing discussion, ends the discourse with a closing comment, and tallies the book scores. Since our inception we have read twenty two memorable books together, enjoyed lively and stimulating conversation, and have formed lasting friendships on our reading sojourns together.
We are currently on break from our reading group for the 2013 -14 season and we are now exploring the world of film.
