KU Book Club continues in the old university library in Fiolstræde again this spring!
Do you want to read more fiction – but find it hard to motivate yourself between your studies and the newest Netflix/Apple/Prime/HBO/Disney+ adaptation?
Or do you just wish you had more “old-school university” atmosphere in your life?
Then join KU Book Club. It’s a cozy and fun way to meet new people and read some great books in the process.
Join us in the old University Library in Fiolstræde, where you meet with your KU Book Club group to chat, discuss,
and share your thoughts on what you’re reading over warm drinks.
The plan is simple – you sign up and let us know a little about yourself and the books you like to read, then we place you in a group based on that. Then you’re welcome to join us every other Sunday afternoon to socialize, chat about books, and enjoy the atmosphere in the historical building. You don’t HAVE to wear a cozy sweater or tweed to join, but we certainly won’t stop you from wearing them either.
Sign-up for the semester is needed, so we know who’s joining!

Some of our earlier reading:
Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca – Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein – Josè Saramago’s Blindness – Terry Pratchett’s and Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens – Jens Blendstrup’s Gud taler ud – Clarice Lispector’s Family Ties – Cormac McCarthy’s The Road – “The Tragedy of Hamlet” – Agatha Christie – The Picture of Dorian Gray – Gogol – “Of Mice and Men” – Tony Kushner’s Angels in America – Bernadine Evaristo’s The Emperors Babe – Banana Yoshimoto’s Kitchen – Stine Pilgaard

We aim to always pick books that are available in libraries, second-hand or online. You can choose if you prefer to read in English or Danish when you sign up. We usually read 50-70 pages between each meet-up.

Currently Reading (Spring 2023):
Victor LaValle’s The Changeling – Tolstoy – Olga Tokarczuks Den rejsende – SJ Watson’s Before I Go To Sleep – Humayun Azad’s I Remember Abbu
