I might be interested but could you post more information about the event here since I'm not on Facebook and don't want to be. Who is the book club aimed at (native speakers, learners...)? How long is each session etc

Thanks, good to know (since the OP seems to have evaporated). I might go along. I'm not working that day, have already read the book and I haven't been to Sello library for years!
