About the Dialogue Society Book Group

The Dialogue Society warmly invites you to join us at the thirteenth meeting of the Dialogue Society book group. The group explores the capacity of books to provide windows into different cultural and intercultural worlds. We are choosing a series of quality novels to read and then to discuss together at relaxed, sociable gatherings at the Dialogue Society. Participants are welcome to suggest books for future sessions.

Participants will need to find a copy of the book chosen for each meeting, and will need to read it prior to the meeting. Books will generally be available from local libraries.

Over refreshments we will have a conversation about the book and our responses to it. Discussion may cover:

  • the quality of the storytelling
  • the authenticity and accuracy with which a historical/cultural situation is portrayed
  • our personal responses to it

You do not need to be an expert on literature or anything else to join in. The group should be enjoyable for anyone who enjoys a good book and likes discovering new ones.

Publisher's synopsis of The Missing Rose by Serdar Ozkan:

This is the story of Diana Oliveira, a beautiful yet troubled young woman whose desire for approval has made her lose sight of who she really is. When her mother’s deathbed confession reveals the existence of a sister, Diana sets out to find the twin she never knew she had. Her travels lead to a mysterious garden, where she is given lessons that change her forever.

Prospective books for future sessions (NB we are open to suggestions):

The Time Regulation Institute, Ahmet H. Tanpinar
An Artist of the Floating World, Kazuo Ishiguro
Pearl of China, Anchee Min
The Picture Bride, Yoshiko Uchida
