anguage Beyond : Call to Organize a Book Club
28th October 16:00-18:00

The language beyond. Words which we can not quite reach. Expressions which we have not yet met, or do not yet understand, but as we explore them in depth they may finally become our own.

Kosaten is hoping to start a regular book club again. The act of reading is one usually performed alone, but we have the ability to discuss around and beyond the contents of the books we place before us. For a single book each one of us holds a different experience and different interpretation, which we have the possibility of opening up to each other through dialogue.

Kosaten is a space where people of different backgrounds, languages and values cross each others’ paths and actively create their place of being. Within this process “expression” and “dialogue” are essential, attempting to build a place for the freedom of expression and the encounter with the other, a platform where multiple voices can be raised, and where we turn our ears to the voices of others. One of the functions of this space is as a library, and here we have a Book Hotel where people can leave their precious books to stay with us for a few weeks/months. It is within such a setting that we wish to hold a book club program.

Kosaten has a number of ideas for the book club but we want to hear your suggestions and create this program together with anyone who wants to join.

Our suggestions:
+To read lesser known writers
+To read works from countries around the world
+To focus on writers who write in their second language

We are planning a meeting in order to organize this program and invite anyone who has an enthusiasm for reading and language. We hope you will come with your own suggestions of particular themes you would like to explore and books/authors you would like to tackle in the book club.
We look forward to meeting you all!
