BAS Book Club – Discussion Group

BAS Book Club – Discussion Group

Book Discussion Clubs originated in the 1920s in the UK and remain highly popular in English speaking countries. They are regarded as a good way to meet new people and enjoy interesting conversations. They  also offer  opportunity to practise  communication skills and arguing a point.

BAS Book Club exists since 2011. Its purpose is to bring together people who enjoy reading and like sharing their reflections and ideas with others. The language of our meetings is English, which means we are  open  to international members. This is indeed the case and the composition of a typical  meeting is multinational. The whole set up  of those meetings is conducive to very lively conversations, of depth rarely possible in everyday situations.


During our meetings  we discuss specific books from a pre-agreed list. The list is put together by proposals of Members at the beginning of each calendar year. All suggestions are welcome: classics, popular fiction, non fiction, crime mysteries, love stories – as long as the  title has been found to be an enjoyable reading .

Our meetings take place on  third Tuesdays each month at 7 PM at the TARABUK café cum bookshop at Marszałkowska 7 in Warsaw. Members receive reminders of meetings and notifications of any changes that sometimes occur. We have a website page on Facebook: The-BAS-Book-Club, with dates of meetings and current titles under discussion. to find information about the next meeting.

There are about 100 declared members, but the size of a typical meeting is 6-10 people, very comfortable for inspiring conversation and getting to know each other. No membership fees, no obligation to buy books. If you would like to become a Member, please just come to one of the meetings or e-mail
