Book Clubs

book club

“No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.”

As Confucius’s above quote states, reading is an art which donate us with the ability of free thinking and awareness of the whole world. Reading is a one person activity but as soon as you wonder the other ladies’ thoughts and share your own ideas in the group, it becomes a shared activity.

We, the volunteers of the Pacifica Institute, started a book club to share our views on our personal readings and to hear about from the other booklovers. If you are interested in attending the club please email us

Some of the books that we have discussed in our book club are:

  • Jumpra Lahiri’s The Namesake
  • Nuruddin Farah’s Close Sesame
  • Ursula Le Guin’s The Dispossed
  • Pearl S. Buck’s The Mother
  • Elif Shafak’s The Gaze
  • Louise Brown’s The Dancing Girls of Lahore
  • Paulo Coelho’ The Alchemist
  • Anita Diamant’s The Rent Tent
  • Elisabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray Love
  • Arundhati Roy’s The God of Small Things
